Goal for this Hackweek

mrouted is the de facto standard for DVMRP multicast routing on Linux and other Unices.

It has support for tunnels, but that does not include joining remote multicast groups. That becomes necessary when some switches with IGMP snooping enabled cut the transmission to the host running mrouted.

My goal is to help by fulfilling this need.
