--- Comment #33 from Damien Miller <djm at mindrot.org> ---
I couldn't reach consensus with the other developers on applying this
patch, so have clarified the documentation instead:

> Note that a negated match will never produce a positive result
> by itself. For example, attempting to match "host3" against the 
> following pattern-list will fail:
>    from="!host1,!host2"
> The solution here is to include a term that will yield a 
> positive match, such as a wildcard:
>    from="!host1,!host2,*"
