                     19: The goal of this project is to implement full virtual network stacks.  A
                     20: virtual network stack collects all the global data for an instance of a
                     21: network stack (excluding `AF_LOCAL`).  This includes routing table, data
                     22: for multiple domains and their protocols, and the mutexes needed for
                     23: regulating access to it all.  Instead, a *brane* is an instance of a
                     24: networking stack.
                     25: 
                     26: An interface belongs to a *brane*, as do processes.  This can be considered
                     27: a `chroot(2)` for networking, e.g. `chbrane(2)`.
