Indeed!  Wow.  I just checked and apparently this has been implemented
mainly for WSL, already since build 14926.

The remaining problem is that we still have non-W10 users.

So I think the right thing to do is to keep ping in a separate package.

Marco, the ping you're maintaining isn't IPv6 capable, as far as I can

Marco and Takashi, what about using ping/ping6 from inetutils but
providing them in a ping package on their own?  Would you mind to
discuss this between the two of you?  Whatever you two come up with is
fine with me.
