Translating from pid to node name

Shawn Pearce
I have a server process which is going to get the pid of another
process, most likely from another node (erts node).  How can I
translate that pid to the name of the node that its coming from?

Specifically I want to advoid having to send the process a message to
request its node name.  :-)
