I started and made a first pass at this, but I got hung up with what to do
with the SNAP headers and the loopback interface and ARP code using 1.0.

I was going to make another pass with current code.  Somebody has done some
general 802 support (for token ring) for ARP and the loopback.  I was 
going to pick that up with the rest of my stuff, and see how it goes.

I might be more motivated to work on this if I had someone else interested
in it and testing.  I've also spent the last 3 months roaming like a drunken
bull through BSD 4.4 networking code for my real job, so I should be lot 
better at it this time around.
