There's a strong correlation between the perceived usefulness to
end-users and their support for a FOSS project :) A simple warning is
easy enough.

I was wondering if that was going to come up. The ip check hidden
behind a warning dialog hinders obtaining useful data. I'll keep that
in mind. Logging information on success and failure to use an exit
would be a useful for debugging (and finding problematic exits).
Thanks for the input.
