Correct. However, since I can't see the user's entire httpd.conf
(thankfully!) I can't assume he doesn't have another Listen or a
BindAddress directive somewhere which would cancel the defaults. Hence I
never leave any important directives to default - if i define them all I
can be sure of what they're set to.
