Will this automatically overwrite /etc/hostname, if you receive a
hostname from dhcp?
If so, this would be a bad idea imho.
If it would only be a D-Bus interface to *configure* the hostname when
explicitely requested by the user, then I'd be ok with it.

Otherwise I think /etc/hostname should be a read-only resource.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
