This is backwards. Do not break the architecture to fix a broken
looking glass (or to work around bad interpretations of real-world
traceroute results). Spend a few minutes scripting your looking
glass software so that if it sees a well-known target, or an expected
real-world result (1918 addresses that YOU are using, with expected
ttl-distance), it returns a "sanitized" result to a naive
looking glass user.
I wonder if there exists the possibility of a useful (perhaps open source)
generalized expert system to interpret traceroute data?
"configure; make; make install" is probably even easier than
breaking one's filter lists to leak prefixes all over the place.
