if we're really not going to reinvent this wheel, then i suggest NMSG,
which has the advantage of having been designed for a general purpose
that specifically includes this one, and having been implemented 
already including a suite of tools and several language bindings.

more users and more developers would be quite welcome.  it's all BSDL.

there are some pointers to it on <https://sie.isc.org/>.

(NMSG was written to replace NCAP which was written to replace PCAP.)
