Simple access to UNIX raw sockets
This egg provides the ability to open, send, and close packet sockets.
Packet sockets are even less cooked than raw sockets, letting you set layer 2 fields manually.
Currently, this egg has only been ported to OSX and Linux.
Future Work: port to Win32, make work with more than one interface at a time.
Opens a packet socket on the given interface name.
Sends a buffer of bytes out the opened socket. BUFFER is the u8vector containing the data to be sent, LEN is the length of BUFFER in octets.
Closes the packet socket.
