[smokeping-users] graphing traceroutes possible?

And of course smokeping can be configured to run a script when a loss 
trigger is tripped.  For awhile I had a little script run traceroute 
and email the results to me when loss was seen on a particular host.

It's not exactly what Joshua was looking for but it's another 
less-resource intensive possibility.
