Thanks for the patch.  While I don't think that the man page needs to
be completely rewritten from scratch, I did incorporate some of your
changes for documenting the new -N, -S, and -A command line arguments.

By the way, a few corrections:

	-l pktlen
		Set  the  size  of outgoing packets to pktlen.  The
		default is to send a packet with just  the  current
		time in it.

The default packet length is the minimum size required to include the
IP and TCP header; we don't include a timestamp in outgoing packets.

	-N	Do not attempt to resolve addresses in the RFC 1918
		private spaces.

The -N flag actually causes everything to be resolved, including
1918 address space.  If you don't specify either -N or -n, lookups
are performed only on non-1918 address space.
