Whilst I agree that it would be a good idea for the plugin to set the
TOS, it would also be very useful to be able to set it on the command
line. Could we not have the command line option for now and then the
ability of the plugin to set could be added later.

What other places are there? The only other one I could find was in
ipv6.c and I do not have an IPv6 network to test it on, or a huge
amount of knowledge on IPv6, so I decided not to implement it.
