foo-projects! it's absolutely brilliant! brilliant i tell you!
from an outside standpoint, i don't really see why it's necessary, but
if it makes admin tasks easier on you, by all means, you're the boss.
i'm a little confused though. first you say:

but then later you seem to contradict yourself:

so what is it? are you going to give us a single hostname that "won't
be anything with lunar or xfce," or are we going to use
espreso.lunar-linux.org? (which, in case you didn't catch it, has the
word 'lunar' in it ^_~) personally, it doesn't matter to me... i've had
my imaps host set to lunar-linux.org for quite a while.
