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.
