[Openvas-discuss] Showing hostname in reports

Is it possible to get the hostname shown in reports as well as the IP
address of the target machine?

When doing subnet scans we've found that the scan often takes longer than
the DHCP lease and as a result the IP addresses in use at the end of the
report aren't always the same as those in place at the start.

Showing the hostname would, lets face it, make it a lot easier to refer to
the target machines when trying to resolve the issues.
