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.
