Setting Node ID

I'm planning on trying out multiple nodes on one host and I'd like to be able to control the node id but as far as I can see this is set in NodeEnvironment to the first unused value. The reason for setting the id is so that I would like to include it in the node name which I currently set to the hostname.

How do others handle this?
