Cheers: I've merged the default node and the die newline change.

I don't understand the point of default_vhost. Without this change, I 
can specify a vhost in the config file and it becomes the default for 
both list and declare. With the change, I see the same thing (as long as 
vhost is defined in the config, default_vhost does nothing).

Can you explain more clearly what this is meant to do?

Cheers, Simon
