I was just about to prepare a patch which does this, and apart from
the naming of functions it looks _identical_ to this one.
So it has to be correct :-) (I've also tested that this works with
empty or missing svdrphosts.conf too, although in this case we could
as well disable SVDRP entirely.)

Documentation and sample is correct in this case, too.
