	I've hated this too.

	I've thought about trying to integrate "mon" 
(http://ftp.kernel.org/software/mon/) with its capability to link items
back to others, so if your T1 to a POP is down, don't tell me that the servers
at the POP are bad, the DNS is bad, the FTP is bad, etc.  It would mean 
changing nocol to be more "command line" than daemon.

	Of course, however, I've had NO time to work on this, and last
time I looked this functionality wasn't totally in place. By now I would think
it is.

	Something to think about.
