Multiple paths found by traceroute in single direction should be displayed
Currently the traceroute subway map assumes that data in a single direction always goes through the same hops. In the case of FNAL and ANL, data alternates between multiple hops. One possible way to display this is a directed graph the branches off in the middle and then converges at the end.
I owe a diagram that sketches what this might look like. There may be other creative ways to display this.

I'm updating the way the "subway map" is integrated with the rest of the data, providing the subway map as kind of overlay, like in a video game, at the bottom of the geographical map. This could have an important bearing what we display and how we display it in terms of multiple paths.
If we show multiple paths, I think it could be practically impossible to show forward/reverse asymmetry and would need to handle that in our visualization accordingly.
