    By the way, if you decide to use only a single Ethernet multicast
    address for ARP, I suggest that you use 01-00-5E-00-00-01. That is
    the Ethernet address that corresponds to the IP multicast address
    224.0.0.1, to which all multicast-capable IP hosts are expected to
    listen. Might as well conserve filter slots, where possible.

I just barfed up my breakfast. Have they stopped teaching modularity
and functional boundaries in computer science classes?
