.. and, if you've compiled in the gif interface, you can't actually
open a raw IP socket to the IPIP protocol, since the gif interface
has it.

This isn't documented anywhere, and its bitten me more than once
(the error message returned isn't exactly the most helpful..)

That said, nos-tun is a nice and simple example of how one would use
the tunnel interface in their own program. Perhaps we might want to
move it to /usr/share/examples/ ?
