I think it won't work. When an ICP reply comes back from a neighbor we
look up the IP address from the recv() call to map it into our list of
neighbors. Rather than needing separate host names, you need two IP
addresses. And you'd have to get the neighbor to send the reply on a
specific address.

But what you want to do can be added to version 1.1.
