Sounds good.  The -s option works, but isn't pretty.  I think that
"suppress email" and "suppress syslog entry" should be separate
though.

The "something smarter" I have now is just a 20-line perl script that
sends the message on to sendmail if certain conditons arn't met.

My "scan the network" perl program that queries the switches isn't in
releasable shape, it has a bunch of hard-coded assumpitons about our
network.  I'd have to ask permission as well, since it was written for
work.
