I have a version with all that which I have not packaged up.  If there
is interest and someone sent me a round tuit, I could make it
available via FTP.  It also does:

	- record route
	- loose and strict source routing
	- specify fixed or incremental TTL
	- Send ICMP MASK REQUEST packets
	- Send ICMP INFO REQUEST packets
	- IP multicast support
