||This implements a UDP mulitcast device discovery protocol that:
* Is optimized for mobile devices
* Doesn't require any special schema for service info
To ensure it works well on mobile devices, there is no heartbeat or other
Devices are typically in one of two groups: scanning for services or
providing services (though they may be in both groups as well).
Scanning devices listen on UPDATE_PORT for UDP multicast traffic. When the
scanning device wants to force an update of the services available, it sends
a status packet to SCAN_PORT.
Service provider devices listen on SCAN_PORT for any packets from scanning
devices. If one is recevied, the provider device sends a status packet
(listing the services it offers) to UPDATE_PORT.
Scanning devices purge any previously known devices after REPLY_TIMEOUT ms
from that start of a scan if no reply is received during the most recent
When a service is registered, is supplies a regular object with any details
about itself (a port number, for example) in a service-defined format, which
is then available to scanning devices.
