Uh, `all` is not a valid IP address. :-)

It looks like the server does bind to all addresses – check with
`netstat -lpt`, you should see it. But by default the `allowed`
option in Catalyst::Engine::HTTP::run is set to only permit
connections from, if I’m reading the source right, and
unfortunately myapp_server.pl provides no way to set a different
value for that option from the command line.
