 I have a use case where my Tor has a dynamic IP on one interface and only
 one interface. The device in question has three interfaces and two of them
 should will not offer an ORPort.

 It is possible to offer specific Tor services by interface only if the
 interface has a static ip. This means that I have to hard code ip
 addresses into my torrc and this doesn't scale very well. It would be nice
 to listen on whatever ip address is bound to a given interface. Here is an
 example stanza:

   ORPort eth0:auto by-interface

 It would also be nice if it was possible to do this for other things like
 the TransPort, etc.

 Any thoughts on this would be most appreciated.
