init_system_name fqdn?

A while back, init_system_name tried to find the system's fully
qualified domain name.  Then this code was taken out, and now it just
uses whatever gethostname returns.  I think this is a poor choice.  Many
systems are configured without a fully qualified hostname.  Then when
you send mail you get "i-did-not-set--mail-host-address--so-tickle-me"
in your from address. Of course this is easily fixed by setting
mail-host-address, e.g., in site-start.el, but then when you go to
report a bug and say "emacs -Q" ... "M-x report-emacs-bug" you are back
to "so tickle me".
