Layer 2 socket connection

Hello all -

I'm looking at trying to write a python script to connect to a layer 2
bridge (no IP available).

Looking at the sockets function, it's not clear if I can connect using
only the mac address - it appears to want either a broadcast address
or a specific IP address.

Can anyone give me a clue on opening a layer 2 socket in Python?
