Yep, but there's no Windows version :-(

A Windows version of this sort of tool is *mandatory* since it is often 
used as a backdoor/tunnel on a vulnerable machine. And what OS is more 
vulnerable than any other ? Hence this mandatory requirement :-)

Netcat has been totally unmaintained for about a decade, and I think

I'm still happy with hping2 (ok, lets forget about the patches we had
to apply to it ;-) *except* its poor ICMP support (sing is better here).

Anyway, your proposal for Netcat enhancement almost exactly fits
Socat. Have you heard of it? Wonderful tool (and GPL) ...
