I agree with Madhat completely on this point.

But I also would suggest that the service option be expanded to allow
for Quick probe and Extensive probe. The current probe could satisfy
the Quick option and check for the most the quickest. And if someone
was willing to give up this speed for the option of a more detailed
probe they could select the Extensive option that could provide 3 or 4
probes for each service.

-sV0 <- Fast probe (or Limited Probe, Quick Probe, etc)
-sV1 <- Slow probe (or Additional Probe, Extensive Probe, etc)

Normally 1 size does not fit all. Those that need "quick and general"
probe would not have to suffer for those that want a "slow and
granular" probe.

Am I going to code this? Hehehe. N o - W a y !

I guess this could be added to the very long "wish list" for nmap, eh?

The more people that feel this is an attractive addition the more
likely it will be looked into.

Honestly I'd rather see a proxy scan be added as a feature first. It
still amazes me that nmap can't use a proxy server after all this
time. I guess no one has asked for it. *shrug*
