What's the motivation? Is the author insufficient for some reason?

I'm almost always committing from a box with a dynamic IP behind a
firewall, for example. In some cases, the firewall box has the same
static IP, but from home, even that may not be true -- the publically
visible IP is just whatever server Ameritech DSL network happens to
assign me to.

So I both wonder whether this information is useful, and even if it
is, whether it always applies or can be reliably obtained... as you
acknowledge in this paragraph:
