There have been some efforts in the past to provide such an option, but nobody
has yet produced a patch I've liked enough to include - and I do acknowledge
that the feature would be cool.

Internally, we even keep a pointer to an allocated string holding the IP
address, so it should be a pretty easy thing to add. You feel like taking a
stab at it?
