You should be able to send PRs with *any* DNS name that maps to your
address.  If you want a permanent one, there are some free "dynamic"
DNS services out there.  If you just want to set the hostname
automatically, note that dhclient will do it automatically if the DHCP
server sends the hostname to it (and if not, you can probably script
something up fairly easily).
