You are absolutely right.

I was aware that introducing that FC-ism would break for iSCSI and other
transports. I just thought I'll get that right in a next release because
I wasn't aware someone was using the thing in such an "exotic"
environment.

I would gladly get a description of your topology, by the way.
It would help to get it right in the future.

Anyway, I'll fix that for 0.4.2
