That's right, IPv6 was first. The IPv6 API looked to me a little easier
than IPv4. My brother, Ben, added IPv4 support.
hslsd purposefully treats addresses in an abstract way. If you really
wanted to, you could make hslsd route a layer-2 network, without changing
much existing code. For example, you could route IEEE802 networks
(ethernet and/or WiFi), Bluetooth, or Zigbee networks. You would,
however, have to write new code, both to interface with the software
bridge in the OS, and to send & receive layer-2 packets.
