The Package of the Month award is a three-way tie:

1.  to pkgsrc/net/hping, nominated by Andrew Brown.  hping was
inspired by the ping(8) command, but as well as ICMP, it supports TCP,
UDP, ICMP and RAW-IP protocols, has a traceroute mode, the ability to
send files using a covert channel, and many other features.

2.  pkgsrc/audio/mserv_irman, nominated by the hastily-recovered David
Brownlee.  mserv_irman is only of use to people with an irman from and a desire to have many people listen to the same mp3
jukebox without bloodshed :)

3.  pkgsrc/emulators/generator, nominated by Alexander Crooks
(relation).  For those moments when the S Club 7 CD just won't
