Do you mean packet protocols as in AF_DGRAM or AF_PACKET?
Why do you think it wouldn't work well?

You mean, the output buffer?
I haven't gotten to that kind of detailed fine tuning.
But the current default value for the buffer is much larger than 1500 bytes.

I'm mostly interested in the syntax and semantics offered to the user
and the kinds of new expressions it allows him to use; these days most
of the work I do on this library involves producing useful examples to
help me fine tune the design.
