it looks like you are the first wanting this, or at least the first that
has expressed it.

It might not be hard to code it in c, it will require to extend the
usrloc structure to have with two timestamps, one to be set when sending
the options and one when receiving the reply. At this moment there is
only one timestamp when the reply is received, see the function
ul_refresh_keepalive() from usrloc, the field in ucontact_t structure is
last_keepalive. So half is done more or less.

You can open a feature request on tracker and probably will get into
4.4. The development for 4.3 is frozen.
