Well, that's quite simple. Since none of the attributes can be empty

have an empty value), the empty string simply means use the old value.

Why is it necessary to send your address in the info command at all? The hub
knows your IP (we're not doing an UDP-based protocol, are we?), so it would
be enough if the client just reported the port it was listening on (although
even this isn't really necessary, if the connection requests will still go
through the hub).
