Thank you very much for these patches.  I have applied patches 1, 3,
and 4.  Patch 2 (fix socket listen address) requires a minor version
bump, as it adds API.  This is by no means a showstopper, but I think
we want to decide whether to push 2.10.1 out first or not; we've been
spinning on it for far too long now.

Agreed.  I didn't see anything immediately objectionable in the
patches (likely to not compile style objectionable), so I went ahead
and pushed them so that they can get more testing.
