What do you all think about adding command line switches that enable/disable these checks? Like --ignore-hostname or --ignore-protocol? The user should know what he's doing, and if he doesn't he probably doesn't know about the switches either. Sensible defaults have to be chosen, though - probably defaults to keep the behaviour the same as it is now.
