Per the TODO list:

Allow pg_hba.conf to specify host names along with IP addresses 

Host name lookup could occur when the postmaster reads the pg_hba.conf
file, or when the backend starts. Another solution would be to reverse
lookup the connection IP and check that hostname against the host names
in pg_hba.conf. We could also then check that the host name maps to the
IP address.

I was considering trying to attack this for 8.3. My thoughts are the

Allow one to specify a FQDN or a simple wild card DN. E.g;

A valid entry would look like this:

host    all         all         *.commandprompt.com          trust
host    all         all         www1.postgresql.org          md5
