Customize Ratel serving address

Moved from GitHub ratel/132

Posted by danielmai:

By default Ratel serves the UI over :::8000 (all addresses). The -port flag exists today to customize the port (default: 8000). There should also be a flag to configure the address. For example, it can be useful to restrict the Ratel web server to only allow access via the server itself on localhost.

Bad actors can run Ratel locally to bypass this restriction, so it doesn’t introduce any extra security.
What are other reasons to add this feature?

IIRC Ahmed already merged this in. Please reopen if more configuration is still needed
