Good idea.  I added it.

I left it out, since it said it was for older Netware, which must be  
ancient.  When I was running across Netware in the mid-90s, it was  
using 802.2 LLC, so that must be really old.  I left it out, since I  
can't imagine we'll run into it, and it just seemed to complicate  
things.  I don't feel strongly, though, so let me know if you (or  
anyone else out there) want me to add it.

Thanks for the review.  I pushed the changes and merged them into
