The -T option was actually one of the main motivations for me to rewrite
some part of fping: "select timeout"? Worst parameter description ever :-)

My implementation will still accept that parameter for compatibility
reasons, but will ignore it. The internal select statement now uses a
dynamic timeout value based on when it expects the next event.

Still, you are probably right that it should be mentioned in the usage
output with something like: ignored (for compatibility reasons). I will
do that.
