Send datagrams on the network interface specified by the
interface's hostname or IP address, and use that as the
source address of outgoing packets. On hosts with more than one IP
address, this option can be used to force the source address to be
something other than the IP address of the interface the probe
packet is sent on. If the IP address is not one of this machine's
interface addresses, an error is returned and nothing is sent.
(taken mostly from FreeBSD; someone please confirm if the error handling
is actually true!)
