haeh - I think what we (jmg, glebius and me) had agreed on on IRC was
default bind should be on 'localhost' with a commented out sample
for 0/0.  And the bogus$(host) should be dropped.

Binding to 0/0 by default just exposes bsnmpd to the world with a
default secret if blindly enabled which is not a too good idea(tm).
