[Seaside] Kom listening to loopback interface only

Hi all,

I was going over the bugs for KomHttpServer on bugs.squeak.org and I
am a little undecided about bug #6738
(http://bugs.squeak.org/view.php?id=6738). What do you think about an
option to make Kom listen only to the loopback interface
Would that be useful to you?

The rationale between this option would be to increase the security of
your application, especially in those situations where you have the
Seaside server and the Apache/Lighty/whatever server running on the
same machine. The default behaviour would still be the same though -
if you start the HttpService using the usual #start method, it would
listen on all interfaces.
