It could also be a socket connection over a physical interface
capable of broadcast. What i meant was that they are a similar problem
from a amnagement perspective; in the sense that if you solve the
socket-"interface" abstraction problem then you can use the same technique
for multiples secondary addresses and present them to OSPF as different
"interfaces".
