    Description

      basing it on hostid is not nearly unique enough especially in a xen environment with duplicated machines and multiple instances of IPs and MACs. I'd suggest something like serial number from BIOS (works for dell, hp, ibm, etc - significant portion of all x86 machines) modified by the system time when facter was initially installed.
