Following is another alternative that might at least
be worth consideration ....
I use the lynx command shown as a command-line alias
under Debian linux ....
>>> import os
>>> pipe_in = os.popen( 'lynx --dump http://checkip.dyndns.org' )
>>> ip_addr = pipe_in.readlines()
>>> for this in ip_addr :
... print this
Current IP Address: 184.108.40.206
