Well, for one, an extension developer probably wants to know precisely what is wanted/needed. That's a good reason for asking questions.
In this case, you have twice added a "feature" and the way I see it, such an extension could well include a permission system like who is allowed to see IPs, or which user's IPS cannot be seen by which groups(or members). Knowing the full scope is sometimes (if not most of the time) required in order to define the design.
For example, If you have only 1 account, it's quite easy to replace your IP in all tables with ::1 or 127.0.01, but your other accounts (in this case) will still point to the same person, ad replacing all of them with ::1 is a dead give away. But that is static data, the whoisonline shows current data (with a small lag) so preventing viewing IP in viewonline solves that problem, except that you want your moderators to see IPs. In this case my first option would be useful (preventing IPs to be seen in viewonline, and changing the IPs for your accounts).
But again, is it worth it? Why do you have 4 accounts which shouldn't be known anyway - sounds like sock puppet syndrome
