* two smokeping servers with different default gateways

* you might be able to find some interesting historical stuff if you
look up traceroute's use of "source routing" (-g) ... though you'd need
to patch source routing support into one of the above tools and make
sure your routers respect it

* policy-based routing: use "ip rules" to create a rule for the target
host and an alternate tos/dsfield (I think echoping can set this) that
uses a different routing table with a different next hop
