Pretty neat. No use for it myself, but nice feature.

Well, there are plenty of cases where a server might respond to pings
normally but the daemon is in trouble and does not respond, or
responds very slowly. Thinking of web, nntp, etc servers here. I don't
have a great need for this myself, or would have tried in my own
feeble way to do it already. But thought it might be interesting
nonetheless, and may have at it some day.
