I've been following this thread (and thinking about your previous
posts on this topic Garrett) and I'm starting to think that having
this as an option in the base is the Right AnswerTM. Off hand I'd say
that we would need options for what hostname to ping, and whether to
use the local name server or just what's in resolv.conf, but that is
trivial stuff. Can I trouble you to post your script?
