sounds interesting :)

I'm in the process of implementing this. Reading the TTL from the
`struct ip' doesn't work for IPv6 unfortunately, because RAW sockets
don't get the IPv6 header. I've switched to `recvmsg' because that can
give me the required meta-data for both protocols.

I've pushed the changes to the Git repository, I'll upload a new tarball
alter today.
