There are two seperate issues:

a)      "ping sending ARP request"	for all ARP networks.
b)      "ethernet CTP ping"		for ethernet only

b) clearly does not belong in 'arp'. I contend that a) doesn't
either, because it would be sending packets and the arp
program doesn't do that, but I could be convinced I guess.
