I don't think it's the best solution, because it addresses a specific
case of a more general problem. For example it doesn't handle the case
where the server on front host runs on yet another port - or it's
running https. The flexible solution IMHO is to add a "base"
configuration option to check against, users who need it will know what
to put there.

Ok. Is policy of the list to send patches here? I will send you my
proposed patch off-list in the meantime.
