Interesting question. One obvious answer is to let different ip-stacks
use different devices. But to make that really useful, I guess one
would need an ethernet device that lets you tell it which ethernet
packets you want to see, and let different IP stacks register for
different ip adresses.

And that leaves the application side of the interface open as well, if
you want to bind on a particular ip, you should talk to the right
pfinet server, and if you bind the wildcard address, you want to talk
to them all.

There's probably some abstraction for dealing with interfaces and
addresses that wants to go here, which is independent of the core of
the pfinet server(s).

Sure sounds like an interesting project.
