Yes.. This would be a nice feature..

There could possible be performance problems with doing a DNS lookup
for each one..
is it possible to do something like what APACHE does?
You can configure the level of DNS.. if it doesn't get a responce
in a certain period.. it just emits the IP address..

Or.. even just lookup ips in /etc/host or something would
be nice..
