Sure... why not?

The kernel normally does one of two things

   --- multiplex hardware resources for applications


   --- cheap router thing

"really good ping responder" is a pointless purpose.

I guess I missed something. That doesn't seem like a problem to
me... and if you need to ship with a rate by default, then ship with a
very-high rate. I've never managed to respond to more than 60,000
ICMP packets/second, so I suggest 60,001.
