At the moment I have configuration (not working, but “ready” anyway :-) for the same virtual
host in UTF-8 and punycode variants. I could easily set one of them to differ from the other.

How will the new httpd handle this kind of situation? I think what I'd expect is a warning
and then for one of them to take precedence and the other to be ignored.
