Alternatively, I suppose that you could just create a small JSP (or even HTML, but then 
host-specific) page in each host, which returns the real hostname.

You should probably be careful however : in your rsync scenario above, is there any 
guarantee that between the time you ask for the hostname (in whatever way), and the time 
at which you do your rsync, the "targeted host" will still be the same ?
