I took a quick look at the available apps. Would you like to consider
'ratproxy' - a very nice open source tool for web-application security
assessment from Google. Which I've used a couple of times earlier and got

It could be added to the 'reconnaissance' category. (though it's a little
more than just that)
Oh, and it's available in Fedora.

will get to it asap.
Many thanks for your suggestion!
