The point was traceroute is _not_ installed by default. An admin desiring to
install this software, in my case, on several hundred servers, I don't want
to have to chmod traceroute on all those boxes, everytime there's an update
to traceoute because of what could be deemed a poor choice for security. 

I don't see where the discussion has gotten moot or off-track. If enough of
the community wants it back the way it was, I assume Gentoo developers will
respond as such.
