Dear all,

I have undertaken a task to renovate and restore `ping'
to correct and expected functionality. There are many
things needing attention, so please do not insert any
changes for the next few weeks (as if there would be
any expectancy to ever see this happen!).

Just tell me why on earth `libicmp/icmp.h' was ever written
in the form it exists today. It differs from <netinet/ip_icmp.h>
in more than forty macros alone. Backwards is really the nicest
thing I can express about that construct. I have just begun
the process of adapting our source files to fit the official
header file <netinet/ip_icmp.h>, thus abondoning `libicmp/icmp.h'.
Let anyone against this speak up now, or for ever rest silent.
Presently this task is conducted on OpenSolaris and four different
BSD variants as normative Unices.

Best regards,
  Mats E A
