Tip of the iceberg ;) However its a good basis because the gtk bit
cannot be setuid so from a security model it is right. Maybe traceroute
hacked to output an XML report is the answer, maybe smarter parsing.

Some of the others like ifconfig/ip stuff can be done unprivileged,
while UDP portscanning is hard to do that way (and not portable)
