Packet manipulation backend of 'netdude'

'libnetdude' is the packet manipulation backend of the Netdude trace file editing framework. It lets you perform trace file manipulations at a much higher level of abstraction than code written directly for the pcap interface. It also supports plugins (dynamically loaded libraries) that can do whatever the programmer desires. When developers write their packet manipulation code as libnetdude plugins, other developers can use their tools. It provides data types and APIs for the most common situations when dealing with libpcap trace files: trace files of arbitrary size, packets, network protocols, packet iterators, and packet filters.
