The latest version of ngrep (1.35) does in fact match ICMP, and has been out
for some time now.


Sweet!  I updated the analysis to use ngrep in preference to
tcpdump/tcpshow for most stuff:


ngrep is *way* more convenient to use, but I had to note that it
doesn't run on as many systems as tcpdump/tcpshow (e.g., Digital Unix
4.x) and it doesn't seem to read tcpdump files, so if you want to
caputure the raw packets for later analysis (timing, flags, etc.) you
need to stick to tcpdump/tcpshow.  If only I'd sent the analysis out
*before* Christmas... ;)
