'runserver' no longer accepts hostname for address:port pair arguments

runserver used to accept a hostname as the 'address' argument for the address:port pair. For example:
python manage.py runserver myhostname:8765
However this now fails with the following error message:
Error: 'myhostname:8765' is not a valid port numberor address:port pair.
...which, incidentally, is missing a space between 'number' and 'or' (see lines 46-47 in django.core.management.commands.runserver.py).
Obviously dummy host:port values are used in the example above, but (just to clarify) the error message also occurs when real, valid host:port values are used.
The error is because of the naiveip_re regular expression defined on line 12 of django.core.management.commands.runserver.py, which is used to validate the 'address' portion of the arguments, which will only accept IPv4/v6 addresses, not hostnames (which, admittedly, may be the desired behaviour...?).
