Currently the default is to send with protocols numbers 1 (ICMP), 2

Since Nmap already has extensive techniques for sending TCP and UDP
ping packets, maybe the -PO defaults should just be 1 and 2 (maybe a

That sounds OK to me.  Using 4 (IP-in-IP tunnel) may be a good
additional one to add as this has a better likelihood to get through
than other uncommon protocols.

I'll change this.
