As VDR already has a class to parse the file, I'll try to create a new function in there, for example with the name "LocalhostOnly" or something like this. I don't think that it's much difference, if I match for "only contains comments" or "only contains comments or". If I just match for "file missing or empty (zero bytes)", then a file with just comments is not empty even if VDR threats it as empty! Maybe it even blocks local connections, as the empty file doesn't have the whitelisting entry for!

I would prefer bind to interface option, if not specified when called
by command line parameter then only bind to lo interface. Some guys
require plugins that also adds svdrp commands for vdr networked
clients, and remote menus etc..
