And so, this is the new proposed set of command line switches (the  
changes) and we would like to collect any comments people might have  
on them.

-u port : TCP/UDP port to capture traffic on
-p : promiscuous capture
-b : brief, one line per packet output in a close to fixed size format
-s direction
-m opcode (qnr) : query, notify, response
-o output file
-r input file
-a ip address : initiator
-z ip address : responder
-A ip address : initiator NOT this IP address
-Z ip address : responder NOT this IP address
