Maybe I'll have to document it as connect(address) with a backwards compatible syntax connect(a, b) being equivalent to connect((a, b)). At least that sets the record straight without breaking old code.
If you *must* support the two-arg flavor (which I've never actually seen outside this discussion), I'd suggest not documenting it as a backward compatibility, only that it will disappear in 1.7. This can be done fairly easily and cleanly in the library reference.
