Or, to be more correct, for compatibility with:

	*BSD, Mac OS X, maybe AIX, and maybe really recent versions of  
Solaris with BPF (although not all of them support PCAP_D_OUT);

	Linux network capturing (except on kernels without PF_PACKET socket  

	Linux Bluetooth capturing;

	Linux USB capturing;

at least with current top-of-Git-tree libpcap.

On all other UN*X platforms...

...until somebody adds code to support it, if that's possible on the  
platform in question.
