Specifying "" isn't as good as specifying null, because when you
specify null you allow Sun's engineers (current or future) to make the
decision.  They can choose to interpret null as meaning both INADDR_ANY
and IN6ADDR_ANY, and they can add IN8ADDR_ANY and IN9ADDR_ANY later.

I think requiring a person to specify "" and "0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0"
explicitly would cause some unnecessary brittleness.

How about this convention?  "jetty:http://any:1234/myPath" in which
"any" or "ANY" means to specify null as the bindAddr, or to use one of
the ServerSocket constructors that don't require bindAddr.
