Hi Wichert,

The IP makes no sense, because 0.0.0.0 is strictly speaking correct as
the IP value, since the process is listening on all interfaces. At that
point we have no progress at all. 0.0.0.0 doesn't tell the viewer
anything about what server it came from, either.

If you were to somehow determine a physical IP then you may confuse the
admin who wanted the process to listen on all interfaces, but then gets
told only about one. As a compromise I used the FQDN instead of an IP.

Putting both a name and an IP into that field violates the RFC[1].
