Sorry about that. I tried to expose the idea because I'm not seeing another
way to notify other controllers without major modifications.

PacketOut in bundles is something that is already "expected" by the OF
protocol. In that sense, we wouldn't modify the switch to have a new
behaviour but simply add a feature that the switch is "lacking" from the
protocol spec.

Do you have other idea in mind to achieve the same goal?
