Hmmm... You "snuck" in an additional change here:

> -<default>UseCanonicalName Off</default>
> +<default>UseCanonicalName On</default>

(and corresponding code changes).

The change to the UseCanonicalName default was deliberate and documented:

The "off" default was selected because it results in a major reduction 
in broken servers and essentially eliminates a FAQ that used to appear 
all the time on the user lists.

I don't have very strong feelings about it, but I don't have any problem 
changing a default like this on a 2.0 to 2.2 upgrade, and I'd prefer it 
you put it back to "off".
