This is hard to decide.
>From Slackwares /etc/hosts:
# By the way, Arnt Gulbrandsen <agulbra at nvg.unit.no> says that 127.0.0.1
# should NEVER be named with the name of the machine. It causes
problems for some (stupid) programs, irc and reputedly talk.
From: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2005/10/msg00387.html it
should be set to:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain calimero
