Hi Derek, Fabrizio,

Yes, as it is now TXNetFile allows only one set of globally-set config 
I remember a brief discussion we had Fabrizio and I once on this, but then
nothing has been done.

As this may be relevant also for  'xrdcp',  perhaps  we should introduce the
possibility to define 'per host' rules in a config file checked by 
making use of the existing 'if-then' infrastructure used for server 

What do you think?


ps: I'll fix the inconsistencies in the names and add the new options in
      system.rootrc: thanks for spotting this.
