Oh, sorry, I confused it with a different program.  Hm, ethtool I'd put
into the borderline category -- one argument in its favor is that you may
need it in order to fix your networking so that you can get somewhere to
install more packages.

(This, for me, is the argument for tcpdump.  You may need it installed in
order to figure out why you can't install packages.)
