Yes, that's definitely the case. (I added it :-) ). FWIW, some
background: the typical deployment scenario early in the life of ZK
was inside a large datacenter, where everything had multiple levels of
firewalls. There was never any concern about the binding behavior
because ZK was put behind one of these firewalls, and only the client
port was exposed. As the deployment scenarios have become more diverse
(ec2 for example), there's been more interest in this type of
functionality. Thanks for picking this up! Appreciated.
