Sorry, we've gotten distracted by discussing how to solve this problem in
general. :) For your immediate needs, I'd just modify lib/genid.c and
recompile; pathhost or something would be reasonable. I'd like to provide
people with a way of doing what you want to do that doesn't require
modifying the code, though, which is what we're trying to figure out.
