So the "freebsd clean" solution would be to create two listen sockets,
one per IP address, and and have each IP address / routing table in a
separate FIB, or separate vnet.

I don't know if anyone has set that up though. It would be nice to
teach some web servers and proxy serversabout FreeBSD FIBs.
