echoping is a small program to test (approximatively) performances of a
remote host by sending it requests such as HTTP requests.
In any case, be polite: don't bother the remote host with many repeated
requests, especially with large size. Ask for permission if you often
test hosts which aren't yours.
Current features:
* plugins, so you can extend echoping with any protocol you like and/or use,
* Supports IPv6 as well as IPv4,
* Supports IDN (Unicode domain names),
* uses the protocols echo, discard, chargen or HTTP,
* can use cryptographic connections with HTTP,
* uses UDP instead of TCP for the protocols which accept it (like echo),
* can repeat the test and display various measures about it,
