The option overrides the interfaces specified by the user. The socket
options that it is using need to use the ANY interface. It even
detects newly added network interfaces real-time and services them.
Also, the socket options may require IPv6. I am not sure to what
extent. Because of that, it may not be such a nice default-option...
Really, it is mostly useful for anycast (load-balancing solutions).
Is what you need an new option that I would call;
