I was under the wrong impression that on kernels, I cant ping 127.0.1.1,
but at least on 2.6 with no loopback route I am wrong, and it works fine. I
think that has changed, but I am not sure if it is something to care about.
Currently lo configures itself to 127/8 network and accept all of those
addresses, too. So it is fine with me.
However, I think about realy emoving localhost from the list of possible
answers of hostname.
