NetPacket provides a base class for a cluster of modules related to
decoding and encoding of network protocols.  Each NetPacket
descendent module knows how to encode and decode packets for the
network protocol it implements.  Consult the documentation for the
module in question for protocol-specific implementation.
Note that there is no inheritance in the NetPacket:: cluster of
modules other than each protocol module being a NetPacket.  This
was seen to be too restrictive as imposing inheritance relationships
(for example between the IP, UDP and TCP protocols) would make things
like tunneling or other unusual situations difficult.
