Is it possible to keep old good trafshow v.3 under, say, net/trafshow3? I've
tried to use trafshow v.5, but I would say that it violates POLA severily:
o It does traffic aggregation by default, and it's impossible to turn it off
from it's configuration file.
o It converses numbers to "human-readable" form like '42K' which seems
confusingly less than say '9800' at the first glance, AND it can't be
o Option '-n' turn protocol decoding off. I would say that it's not always
obvious that protocol 6 = TCP even for advanced trafshow user.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't like the new design of good
old trafshow and wants trafshow v.3 to be available.
