Your ERef also allows you to choose which interface to bind to. White
Pine reflectors let you generate a list of interfaces to bind to. None of
the clients though let you choose. And there's a LOT more clients out
there than reflectors. It seems like it wouldn't be too hard to add (as
you did in the Enhanced Ref).

I wonder if this explains why the White Pine version of the client seems
to choose a different interface to bind to than the Cornell version?
