Bug Description

I have a little "script" in ~/.byobu/bin that might be useful for other people too. It just runs

  wget -q -O - http://www.myexternalip.com/raw

which fetches the "external" IP when you are behind a NAT. Sometimes that's useful, and it might be useful as one of the default included status options...

AFAIK this site only supports IPv4, maybe there are others that also support IPv6?

And of course there is the possibility of accidentally "leaking" info, so *enabling* this by default would be wrong IMO.
