Hi Hugh (and everyone),
I'm sorry for taking forever to respond to your enthusiastic reply! I just
submitted a PR that implements this change. Details about it can be found
in the PR:

> *Subject:* [StarCluster] Prefixing hostnames with cluster tag
> Hi all,
> I'm proposing a new feature and would like to both gauge people's
> interest and get your feedback.
> I'd like a config option to prefix hostnames of a cluster with the
> cluster tag or a user-defined prefix upon cluster creation. For example:
> I have a cluster named "mynewcluster" with two hosts, "master" and
> "node001." I'd like those hosts to be named "mynewcluster-master" and
> - I'd like to simplify the process of hooking up my starcluster nodes
> with our internal DNS. This would let me have multiple clusters in the
> same DNS without name conflicts caused by having "master" nodes everywhere.
> - It's easier for our sys_eng/ops team to identify a starcluster node
> they see in the AWS console.
> - one cluster can communicate with another inside our internal dns
> without using ip addresses.
> - Has anyone worked on this?
> - Is anyone interested in this?
