client enhancement request

We had a power outage yesterday and one thing we decided would be useful 
would be to have some way of identifying the console that console is 
connected to. Say  by having something like

[hostname] [console server] [device]

on the top line of the console. and have it togglable for people that 
don't want it.

Of course at this point someone mails me and tells me that you can do 
something like this already.

The other Idle thought I've just had, was if we allowed a comment field 
on the end of the conserver.cf console entry

scar:/dev/cub23:9600p:&:1h:"Patch panel 7 port 6648"

you could have something like

client:server:dev/cub23:Patch panel 7 port 6648

on the top line.

Silly idea?
