comment DNS naming convention for multi-homed devices
an address can have PTRs to many hostnames - you can put multiple PTR records under the same in-addr.arpa label, in the same way that you put multiple DNS records under other labels. Its pretty rare but I have seen it in the wild.

comment setting the “FROM” field in /usr/bin/w output
another thought i had was that I can have a setuid program that tidies up the utmp entry to the form I want, run in bash_profile. Not sure that I can make it mandatory, but it will at run by default.
