I forget if I used 4.3.10, but I'm pretty sure that was before my time.
I was still using Big Brother :)

That looks fine. That will replace the nopropred and nopropyellow values
with "tls". If you wanted to append "tls" to the end of the existing
nopropred, it would be
From my man page:

> If a host-specific tag begins with a '-' or a '+', the host-specific tags are removed/added to the default setting from the command-line option. If the host-specific tag does not begin with a '+' or a '-', the default setting is ignored for this host and the NOPROPRED applies to the tests given with this tag.

Does the nopropred work if you append it to a specific host line?
Do things because you should, not just because you can.
