 Priority:  normal       |   Milestone:                     
Component:  varnishd     |     Version:  trunk              
 Severity:  normal       |    Keywords:  purge host hostname
 When serving many hosts through varnish it may sometimes be necessary to
 purge all pages from one host.
 There would be two ways to support this:

 1. make the hostname part of the data a regexp can match against when
 purging on the admin console.
 2. make purging by http/vcl able to take wildcards.

 The only way to do it now is to somehow get a list of all the cachable
 urls one host may contain, and purge them all by http.
