  == Why can't I make Cassandra listen on 0.0.0.0 (all my addresses)? ==
  
- Cassandra is a gossip-based distributed system.  ListenAddress is also "contact me here
address," i.e., the address it tells other nodes to reach it at.  Telling other nodes "contact
me on any of my addresses" is a bad idea; if different nodes in the cluster pick different
addresses for you, Bad Things happen.

- If you don't want to manually specify an IP to ListenAddress for each node in your cluster
(understandable!), leave it blank and Cassandra will use InetAddress.getLocalHost() to pick
an address.  Then it's up to you or your ops team to make things resolve correctly (/etc/hosts/,
dns, etc).
