I have a patch (attached) that I have been meaning to post here
for comment. This thread prompted me to send it on.
It allows the left/rightid to use DNS names when combined with the
ipv4:/ipv6: ID types to for the ID type.
The patch could be more comprehensive but it solves the basic use
case I needed.
Any comments or suggestions welcome,
