I agree.  It'd be nice if one could tell setup early-on which host
you were configuring; are there any widgets that do discovery of
local devices, et cetera?  If not, this sounds like an easily fixed

Try changing the hostname to that of your backend before running
setup on your frontend.  If it works, you're in business.
