True. We do not have keep-alive mechanisms between proxies, thus it
might happen that the TCP connection will be closed and the port in the
alias is not useable anymore.
That's also a reason why IMO there should it should be possible to use
the alias function without auto-magic, and implement the usage rules in
the script. And once we have found the proper usage rules, implement
them and activate them using a certain flag/parameter.
