http://www.google.com/search?q=pkgdump shows nothing else with that 

But "pkgdump" is not good -- it sounds like a packaging tool, not a
network tool.  I think there is a translation problem:

  package = a collection or archive of software or files
  packet = a chunk of network data

I think you might want to use something like "packet*" or "pkt*" for
the name.  Check google for conflicts.
