I beg to differ.  Laptops have notably more complicated firewalling 
requirements.  For instance, I completely trust everything on my SOHO 
network, but don't trust my connection to the internet.  I don't trust 
anything but my desktop machine on the client's network, but I _do_ trust 
their own internet firewall.  So it's often important to be able to detect 
details of the connection.
