Using the per-domain custom function will still be faster when used with a
lot of domains. In that case, the domains are looked up in a hash table
(very fast). With the "and" operator, all the rules have to be checked
until a match is found, as the address tests can be arbitrary strings and
not just domain names.
It will be in 4.26.6.
