It would retrieve the name of the machine that the audit message came from. In 
this format, it would default to the rough equivalent of "uname -n". The 
record format will change to accommodate a host field. This is needed so that 
a data center can have a central logger that stores everything.

No. look at the example code. You would do

if (auparse_find_field(au, "user") {
	const char *str = auparse_get_field_str(au);
	do-whatever(str);
}

Yes.
