My personal answer would be (1) I want to monitor my own systems
with collectd, normally I don't care what path my packets take out on
the Internet (2) traceroute relies on sending many
packets and waiting for timeouts. This makes it slow.
I would not want it running every 10 seconds.
Looking forward to the next rev with the new library...
