The point is that if you have two data files, one where the flag was
used and one where it wasn't, and then create a plot with both of those
data files... Then the plot will show two wildly different ping graphs
for what is ostensibly the same test.

Yes, we can save it in the data file, but we also want it to be obvious
from the plots themselves...
