Am I the only one that finds the newest changes to traceroute nothing but a
large inconvenience?
                                                                                
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34477 states that it's a useless
security risk for a default install, however traceroute isn't even installed
by default for a Gentoo install.
                                                                                
As near as I can figure, if I install traceroute, I want to use it, not muck
with permissions or su - everytime I care to do some network analyzation.
