We use a naming scheme of nXXXX.cluster, where XXXX is a 4-digit,
0-padded number and "cluster" is the name of the cluster.  I shifted
the nodename display to the right using %20s to make room.  At some
point I'll probably split the name into 2 separate columns to make it
more readable.

It seems to work fine on 4.x.  I've only played with it a little bit,
but I haven't noticed any issues.  We do get quite a bit of output,
even with the -f option, so it's possible I missed something.
