You know, I knew that looked really familiar and I'm sure I'd tried to
implement it once, but couldn't quite get the syntax right for setting
the variable. There's a hint at the functionality in the descriptions
for the ping <http://sysmon.org/config.html#pingTest> and pingv6
<http://sysmon.org/config.html#pingv6Test> test types.

My only question: does this work across files? For example, I've got a
main file that I includes a number of others, can I set it just once
in the main file and will it work for the other files that I include?
Or vise versa?
