Re: [bug-inetutils] Add --queries option to traceroute

   This option is provided by all the other flavours of traceroute (most
   of them from BSD) that I could find.

How is the option different from --tries?  As far as I see it, this
patch only renames queries to tries, and adds the new option
--queries, and I think --tries is much clearer; we can provide
--queries/-q for compatibility, but in the code, and the prefered
option should be --tries IM(NS?)HO.

There is a alias option to argp that one can use for this.

   All of them stress on NUM being greater than 0, while a few of them
   also require it to be less than or equal to 10. I chose [0, 10] as
   an interval for NUM since 10 looks like a reasonably big number for
   the purposes of traceroute.

I think the interval should be [0, oo].
