Sorry for my slowness, I have like 50 mails marked by now to get back on and
one of them is this subject! Thanks a lot for your work and your patience.

I still think three options for setting a single source address is a bit
strange. What if the user sets two of them? We need to document the prio order
or possibly it should just override the previous value if the users sets a
new. The differences between source address for DNS requests and the regular
connections make the API a bit unexpected.

But these are not strong opinions. If you think this is the better API for
these things then I won't stand in the way. Bring it on!
