What would be the use-case for this? Changing the status output would require changes to whatever programs that parse that information.

Since we don't actually know the MAC address of the client (unless the client voluntarily sends it to us by --push-peer-info - and even then, the client might not actually *have* a MAC address if it has no ethernet and just a UMTS link...), I'll just close this for now.

evg2108, please reopen if you can come up with a bit more of background why this would be useful.

samuli: it's not that bad, as status 2/3 have column headers, and we've extended that in the past - but still, extra code needs to have a certain benefit...
