lo is a layer 3 (ip) interface. So everything that speaks ip can talk to
it, if you enable routing on the box. So that means in the past I had 32
publically routed addresses in addition to on lo.

# infra.glanzmann.de:
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet scope host lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet brd scope global lo:0
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
