It would be nice to be able to bind multiple times, possibly with a different security level. It would help binding on multiple protocols (IPv4 and IPv6), on different IPs, on several interfaces but not all. It would then be trivial to enforce TLS for external connections and no security for localhost or a trusted network. It would also solve #219.

This will have to change:

bool IsOptional() const { return type == MyConfig::OPTIONAL || type == MyConfig::MULTIPLE; }

to allow multiple and non-optional blocks for daemon. It means the type would have to be a flag rather than an enumeration.
