Lewis submitted a _ping_darwin function that will hopefully work on all versions of Mac OS X. - Changed the test suite to only implore people to send me test results if there were any failures. - Test suite can now run non-interactively, as it doesn't prompt the user to hit enter. 0.10: Nov 10 2001 - Fixed unrecognized characters in _ping_freebsd that caused the module to die on some systems.
