I thought about those, but did not use wget, ab, curl etc.. because
- the problem happened on users Windows workstations, and I wanted to 
test from there. Neither of the above are standard under Windows, some 
may be hard to find in Win32 binary version.
- neither wget or these other tools, I believe, allow by themselves to 
run the test on a series of URLs, in a loop, with a variable time-out
- I wasn't sure of the level of debugging information I'd get when there 
was a connection drop, without at the same time getting a lot of verbose 
stuff when no error was found
- the Windows "shell" under which I would have had to do something in 
order to wrap any of the above to do what I wanted is not exactly my 
preferred programming environment
- on the other hand, perl was already installed on the workstation and 
for things like that it is really great

And let anyone who hasn't ever re-invented a personal version of the 
wheel throw me the first stone.
