With our MBS module we already have a couple of useful constants like plugin version or build date and time. Now we added there user, computer and host names. Those names are queried when the IDE starts up by the plugin. Than at compile time those constants are included as text in your application. So the plugin only queries the strings in the IDE, not in the final app.
Maybe a good idea for you to include this in your about dialog if you wonder who of your team built an app
