However feel free to test it and report bugs.

Netsed, the network packet stream editor, is a program originally written by Michal Zalewski .
While the program idea is good, it’s implementation had some lack, and nobody seamed to care enough to fix it.
I did already hack it some years ago, and it appeared that my changes was fixing a debian RC bug (#586037) so I took netsed maintenance as one of my new projects!

Also I’d like to really thank Mats Erik Andersson and Tim Retout for their answers and support.
