However, ping / ping6 (on Linux and OpenBSD) use the "-f" command line
option to enable "flood ping", so, imho, it's not a very good idea to
use that option for something else in oping. OTOH, ping / ping6 already
use quite a lot of letters for various options, so I don't know what
else could be used ... :-/

Any comments, suggestions?
