You can't have multiple processes listen on the same address and port,
but you CAN have one listen on a specific IP and port and another listen
on INADDR_ANY and the same port. By extension, you'd expect a _more
specific_ binding of INADDR_ANY to override a more general one.
Certainly, if one process is listening on 192.168.0.1:1234, then another
should NOT be able to bind to that same address. It's not clear that the
same sweeping statement can be made about INADDR_ANY.
