The KAME integration is a primary reason why I am becoming more
reluctant to reorganize net/, or possibly postpone it until that work
is done.  Another guideline that lines up with our existing code might
be to require all networking modules to use a directory matching
the regex 'net.*'.  I'm planning on doing this in stages anyway, and
net/ would probably be the last stage if it is done, but I need to
discuss this with Peter first. :)
