This is a manager webapp, and it is a section on server information, so it
should display the server host name, not the particular connector information.
This sounds really intuitive to me, it is like that in all admin webapps I've
seen so far. So I will have to veto the proposed change for the time being and
I also don't see the point of documenting it (server host name means the server
host name ... ok, nice).
