Hey James,

That's a cool idea for a flag, I don't think it exists right now. You 
can, however, use hping3 to do that (I shortened the lines for brevity):

bash-3.1$ sudo hping3 -S -p 135
HPING (eth0 S set
len=46 ip= ttl=128 id=30834 ...
len=46 ip= ttl=128 id=30835 ...
len=46 ip= ttl=128 id=30839 ...
len=46 ip= ttl=128 id=30848 ...
len=46 ip= ttl=128 id=30857 ...
len=46 ip= ttl=128 id=30862 ...

Note the id column -- that'll tell you whether or not it's a likely 
candidate by whether or not it's incrementing, and if it's incrementing 
by one. I was using Terminal Services on that system while I did that 
test, to ensure it woudl jump by a lot.

Hope that helps!
