in thread A proposal for improvements to Net::Ping

There are several techniques for using TCP to determine the status of a host.

Advanced methods (see nmap and hping) require inspection of TCP headers and handshaking. Net::Ping relies on connect() only. I believe a revamp (maybe with Net::RawIP) would definitely be a good thing.
