So what's used to show the current network connections in an iproute2
installation?  Anything?  Nothing else listed on the iproute2 page of
the book you linked to sounds like it will do it.

Like I said, I can live with both packages being put in the book (or
with just a few programs from net-tools along with iproute2), but
unfortunately I don't think a lot of other people will agree with that.

OK, so it is actually not being maintained then.

That's fine, I just wanted to make sure.
