[New-bugs-announce] [issue2574] Add RFC 3768 SSM Multicast support to "socket"

New submission from bms <bms at incunabulum.net>:


Here is a patch to add RFC 3768 SSM Multicast support to low-level
Python socket module as of 2.5.1.

I have not tested the setsourcefilter()/getsourcefilter() socket member
functions other than compiling the patch on a Gentoo Linux 2008.0 box
w/2.6 Linux kernel.

These APIs should be fairly portable. Note that I haven't added any
other configure glue, like the rest of socket, support is very low level
and getting the arguments to struct.pack() right is the user's problem.
