  Description     : a framework to easily send and receive frames from layer 2 to layer 7

This module is a unified framework to craft, send and receive packets at
layers 2, 3, 4 and 7.

Basically, you forge each layer of a frame (Net::Packet::IPv4 for layer
3, Net::Packet::TCP for layer 4; for example), and pack all of this into
a Net::Packet::Frame object. Then, you can send the frame to the
network, and receive its response easily, because the response is
automatically searched for and matched against the request (not
implemented for all layers).

Closing this bug without resolving it, since Net::Packet is deprecated upstream.

This will instead be replaced by packaging Net::Frame.
