Now we've gone completely insane

Not to sound like a nitpicking ass but the first line in the bfd source says

"Bidirectional Failover Detection”

Shouldn't that be Forwarding Detection?

 We've been using BFD in customer sites for primary / secondary
failover detection.  It's weird, but useful.  After 18 months, we've now
made it public.

 ARP was done "just 'cause".

 i.e. adding a new protocol to the server is now trivial:

$ wc -l src/modules/proto_arp/*.c
    318 src/modules/proto_arp/proto_arp.c

 If anyone wants to add a schema for ARP, and implement the detection
rules from "arpwatch", that would be welcome. :)
