I thought really hard about it and I came up with a brilliant idea: we
could use unicast SAP extensions! \o/ The SAP packets would be sent in
unicast to the recipient's address, instead of multicast. And the SAP
service discovery could be extended to bind a socket to UDP port 9875
and process incoming packets as SAP. Seriously, it's kind of custom, but
it doesn't sound like a bad hack to me.
