Hello Nmap hackers,

I am have written a script which makes use of an external service.
The script would be a replacement/compliment to asn-query, targets-asn
and whois.  however there is  worry that the increased load would take
down the service.  in an effort to try and gauge this i wanted to ask
if there is anyone here who would be able to give a good estimate of
the number of requests one should expect to see from a script placed
in the safe, external and discovery category.

Another concern raised by the service provider was that they would
have a record of everyone nmap user that used there service (i.e. web
logs).  Is this a genuine worry, has it come up before for other
external services?

Finally the service provider would want to include, in the output, a
line stating that the results were provided by them.  Would this be

Any feedback would be welcome.
