[ClusterLabs] corosync-quorum tool, output name key on Name column if set?

when I'm using corosync-quorumtool [-l] and have my ring0_addr set to a 
IP address,
which does not resolve to a hostname, I get the nodes IP addresses for 
the 'Name' column.

As I'm using the nodelist.node.X.name key to set the name of a node it 
seems a bit confusing
to me that not this one gets preferred or at least also outputted. Its 
quite a minor issue if
not nit picking but as I associate my nodes with there name I.

I'd be ready to assemble a patch and one possibility would be adapting 
the output to something

And respective:

> # corosync-quorumtool -l
> Membership information
> ----------------------
>     Nodeid      Votes Name ring0_addr
>          1          1 uno (local)
>          2          1 due
>          3          1 tre

additional ring1_addr could be also outputted if set.

This would be just a general idea, if there are suggestions I'll gladly 
hear them.

As such a change may be not ideal during a stable release, e.g as 
corosync user could
parse the corosync-quorumtool output (I mean there are quite better 
places to get the
info but there may be still user doing this)  another possibility would 
be adding an
option flag to corosync similar to '-i' (show node IP addresses instead 
of the resolved
name) which then shows the nodelist.node.X.name value instead of IP or 
resolved name.

Another, third, option would be letting the output as is but if the '-i' 
option is not
set prefer the nodelist.node.X.name over the resolved hostname and fall 
back to IP if
both are not available.
I'd almost prefer this change the most, it lets the output as it is and 
it seems logical
that the Name column outputs the name key if possible, imo.

Would such a patch be welcomed or is this just something I find a little
