Sounds interesting. But keep in mind that on machines using multiple
hostnames/ip java will only return one (IMHO on Linux it's the first 
entry in the /etc/hosts). That can result in some problems
you cannot track down easily.
It's quite ok to do it that way (I don't have any other idea), but it's 
always good to keep the traps in mind.
