While we're on the subject, I think a great feature would be the ability 
to encode & transmit the originator's full domain name _as it thinks it 
is_ (such as the output of "hostname -f" on linux), or its primary IP 
address.  We have many hosts that transmit their logs through stunnel to 
our central syslog-ng servers, so naturally their IP addresses are not 
available for reverse lookups.  Unfortunately, many of these hosts have 
the same hostname, but different domain names--so their logs are 

This might be quicker to implement than built-in SSL.
