this is not how I interpret it.. I presume it is is to allow two OUTGOING sessions from the same source.

This is not the case today.
Only multicast sockets seem to have the behaviour of broadcasting the data
to all sockets sharing the same properties through these options!

The patch at [1] implements/corrects the behaviour for UDP sockets.
Is there anything to be corrected in that patch?
Why it has not been provided there before?
Can it be committed to the tree?
Any extra security checks for jails needed there?
