[PVE-User] Proxmox VE 2.0 final release: node hostname

Hi Dietmar,

Never had problems configuring A or PTR records that start with a number 
on bind.
Anyway I remember troubles with Postfix with a hostname that was 
composed by numbers *only*.

I believe RFC1123 updated RFC952 and permits hostnames to start with a 
number (I'm reading http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hostname).
Maybe subsequent RFC updates changed this again?

Best Regards,
