Well, I discovered the info about the X-Leafnode-NNTP-Posting-Host
header, which at least displays the IP address.  This is quite useful,
but I'm wondering how hard it would be to also cause it to optionally
do a DNS lookup and also display the domain name, if it's found.  Given
that this can be a somewhat expensive operation, I would want it to
be controlled by a configuration variable.

I'm willing to create a patch which adds this feature, but before I get
to work, I'd like to know what the rest of you think about this idea.
