It is, but the 'vos listvldb' command just only shows one address in its
output. We just pick the "first" address to display; I'm not sure if
there's any way to pick which one that is (if there is, I don't think it
would be guaranteed to keep working). If you don't want the internal
address to appear, don't include it in NetInfo.

The 'vos listaddrs' command is also looking in the VLDB; the addresses
only come from one place.
