[mythtv] [PATCH]: show IP address in system status screen

With all the discussion that's going on about this, I'd like to propose a slightly 
different solution (which would ultimately mean less work for me :)

Have a customisable string field optionally printed on the main screen.
This could then be set to $date $time (which is what i want), or $eth0_ip or any 
other internal /shell environment variable you want displayed.

I still haven't found time to open up and hack the source to the front end, so I 
don't know how difficult it is, but i'll find the IP patch useful to base my 
clock/time display code on anyway.

thanks eric.
