You have forget, that ^ and = also equal?

I believe the strict-host set is longer existant as the ircnet (which used i-lines), 
probable was the reason for coding the strict-host-set that some users on time 
a working ident-daemon have and a other time not. 
'+', '-', '^', '=' was added to fixfrom I believe in 1.0e.
I understand you correctly, you want to lost the original-idea and with a new 
meaning for the strict-host-set that only restrictet or not irrelevant is? This 
would be a improvement for ircnet-users the at the moment like strict-host 1,
but what is with the others, I mean the still have the original-reason for using 
strict-host 0?

Happy new year
