lol.  I wrote that part of the scrubber.  I also write IDSes for a
living.
IDSes *must* not be sensitive to increases in ttl.  But the hard part is
what to do when the ttl decreases and guessing if the end host will
actually receive that segment or not.
I suppose an anomoly detecting IDS could use TTL to try and dynamically
determine topography but that isn't of too much utility.
