I don't think you can. At least I couldn't find any method to do host based
purging without using the PURGE HTTP Method.

True, but if he's doing this he can't do Wildcard purging!

If there's any way to do wildcard purging on a specific hostname I'd be
interested in that too.

Something like for instance

PURGE /foo/bar/.* HTTP/1.1
Host: some.host.tld

But afaik this is not possible yet.
