Hmm.. ok, I can do this: -xmlrpc.hostname=, and I get my
default any-address bind, which is good.  However, it would also
be *very* nice to be able to specify a list of addresses to bind
to.  My machine has 6 addresses (7 if you include localhost),
plus potentially lots more virtual addresses.  I may not want to
expose this service to all interfaces, and throwing firewall
rules in all over the place gets rather messy.

In an ideal world, I would like to be able to do this:

XML-RPC running on these ports, for example:
(out of the 7 available)

I did attempt to specify multiple xmlrpc.hostname property values
(or on the command line), but all that happened was it picked up
the last (or first) defined value ignoring the others.
