Point to Point Ethernet

There are lots of great little cable testers that can "loop" an Ethernet
link or even blink the switchport (this one is copper only):
The remote-triggered is harder, but there are a number of switches I have
seen that have some form of line testing built in, so that might be close to
a decent solution. One example is the "Integrated Cable Test" and Optical
Transceiver Diagnostics in the Dell PowerConnect switches.

We also need functional remote loop testing, of the "remote hands guy plugs
in a loopback plug" or "I send remote-triggered loop" type.
