Hmm.. OK. I was looking at that stuff today and wondering about that. Can we 
call them vhosts? Everyone already knows what that means from apache...

Also, I was thinking that, while we are on a roll, maybe we should rename 
clients.conf to nas.conf given that with CoA the hosts listed there may be 
client, server or both....
