Someone's already done it. Have a look at the newcvsroot script,
distributed in the 'contrib' directory of the source code.

OK, I must be missing something here. The whole point of hostnames is to
avoid having to worry about IP addresses. Why do people (you're not the
only one, I see this all the time) insist on hard-coding IP addresses?
Is it really that hard to set up hostnames and DNS systems?

Heck, even adding an entry to /etc/hosts would work, then all you have
to do is modify one line and away you go.
