That's reasonable. It's nicer if default hostname is something like "Fedora18" instead of localhost.

If the user uses autopart, at the "point of no return" the code can grab the hostname at that moment, be it the default or a user chosen hostname prior to committing to the autopart path.

If the user uses custom layout, the hostname at that moment is used as the default VG name. The user can then change the VG name, or not. Once they finish this spoke, they've at least tacitly approved the VG name, whether default or user set. A subsequent hostname change I do not expect to then cause a rename to the VG name.

Ick. I think it's possible to do something 80% sensible 80% of the time without tapping the user on the shoulder with a giant billboard sign for something ultimately fairly low priority and inconsequential.
