I don't know offhand for Vidalia, but for Tor, just refer to nodes by
their key fingerprint, sticking a $ before the fingerprint,
as in:
EntryNodes $70A08C76BCB9ADE55907029B83DB6891957AC92C

If you want to force a given name binding, you can use the format
to only match a "Named" server with the given nickname and key, or
to match any server with the given nickname and key.

This feature could be better documented, though, and I'd love to get a
documentation patch to explain all of this better. :)
