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.
You can already accomplish this. Setup /etc/hosts correctly and leave ListenAddress blank.
