What Owen meant was that if you expect it to answer *only* for a.b.c.d:80,
and *not* to answer for other addresses/interfaces, you may be in for a
surprise (consider a DMZ host where you have:

outside world -  128.257.12.2
inside facing - 192.168.149.149

VirtualHost 198.168.149.149:80 # super-sekrit corporate internal site

Changing that VirtualHost to *:80 will probably cause some grief. ;)
