ICMPd is the daemon ('shell app') that runs the request over that
port. It would be a case of recreating the ICMPd functionality in
Rev, all it's doing is sending specifically formed packets over that
port that servers/routers/etc running their own ICMPd will respond to.
It's a small app. If anyone else is interested then I might have a
look at the code (should be able to get a hold of the C/C++ source
code) and attempt to translate it to Transcript. Not too sure how
tight I can get the timings, but it should be accurate enough.
