[bug-inetutils] ping feature request: timestamps for ping replies AND ping outages

I would like to ask you all to enhance code of ping so it will be able to show timestamps for each reply - positive or negative, this time stamp option should use the same algorithm as program 'ls':
--time-style=STYLE with -l, show times using style STYLE: full-iso, long-iso, iso, locale, +FORMAT. FORMAT is interpreted like 'date'; if FORMAT is FORMAT1<newline>FORMAT2, FORMAT1 applies to non-recent files and FORMAT2 to recent files; if
STYLE is prefixed with 'posix-', STYLE takes effect only outside the POSIX locale
I think it will be useful to show negative ping replies only when --timestamp option is used.
