It would be nice if Cassandra looked at all the available interfaces and
selected the one whose reverse DNS lookup returned ".*cassandra.*" (or
some keyword the user provided).

In other words, when you have

eth0 = address X, reverse = "67.frontend.com"
eth1 = address Y, reverse = "cassandra-67.backend.com"

eth1 should look better.  So maybe ListenAddress could support this in
the configuration somehow, as a string spec or a
ListenAddressPreferReverse option.  That would let those of us with
multiple interfaces use the exact same config everywhere.
