Indeed, I think we should:

  Fix the wildcard-check to allow a single '*' pretty much anywhere in the
  the string and it should match "normally" against the used host name.

  Remove the requirement for the dot in the name

  Remove the restriction that prevents the '*' part to include a dot.

You or me?

That's just me being sloppy with const. It should indeed have it made const.
