Is it at all likely that we'll want to enable this by default someday?
If so, then the documentation might want to be more vague about
whether it's disabled by default ("For now, ....").

I guess that we will initially snoop only IGMPv4.  That should
probably be documented.  If we add IGMPv6 later, will it need to be
enabled separately?

We normally add documentation for a feature in the same commit that
adds the feature, so this commit should probably be squashed with
whichever commit actually adds support.
