Enables the ability to click on the clock in a Login Window and toggle through various information such as: IPAddress; HostName; SystemVersion; SystemBuild; SerialNumber; DSStatus; and, Time. Based on info from https://twocanoes.com/12-customizations-for-the-mojave-macos-login-window-that-you-didnt-know-about/ and a suggestion for deployment by Kevin Ginger of kGinger Consulting. Install_Check and Removal script and other scripting techniques owe a lot to Armin Briegel. See: https://scriptingosx.com/2014/12/control-ssh-access-with-munki-nopkg-scripts/
