 My understanding was that the hostname thing is done so that bootup
doesn't stop when you have no network ... and the above module doesn't
help much there (you still have to timeout the DNS requests).
 And it still fails in the same way, when there is no network (Ie.
daemon can bind to a specific IP that is the "wrong" one).
