This is what I did for a project that needed to make a distinction between
production and development.  Create an XML file with the URI for the server,
then use doc(the-uri-to-the-xml-file) pull the URI for server out with an
XPath.  Every server runs a script to produce their own XML file at startup,
just in case someone decides to rename the server.  Low tech, but it
