	That at least gives the full hostname, but also displays
4 other occurances that are logged in from either my laptop
or from work.

	What I ended up with was using PAM -- there is a module
pam_env.so (doc in /etc/security/pam_env.conf) that allows you
to set 'session credentials' which can include variables such as
the remote host.  Almost clean!
