Then why (1.4.5 and everything earlier) is the thing lying? Why does it
report anything at all? ping is ping (icmp echo request as a rule), noop
is noop.

To quote Jeffrey Stedfast: "pretty standard for network apps...". No,
noop is pretty standard (the client don't usually report it at all), but
icmp echo request is not. That's just sinister.
