brat.c = Possible BGP latency generator

I started doing some reading/catching up on networking, and decided
to modify an old tool to tinker with BGP a bit. I was hoping I could
benchmark some stuff to avoid a possible nightmare should someone
decide to make a worm that attacked routers `ala` SoBigf/MSBlast.

The thought I had was: "What if someone took their time and made
something like that, that took time to install the necessary
includes to compile a packet spoofing random generating, router
attack tool. So this is what I came up with. Now I could test it
on machines running zebra at home, but I don't have enough routers
to make the necessary configurations for the scenario at:

Reasons why I decided to tinker with this? Suppose someone does
decide to create something that stupid (that attacks routers)
what could be done being that nothing like this has ever been
done on this scale (worm + dos + bgp routers with specific packet
info), and it would be helpful to all admins and vendors if
they could find probs beforehand and fix things up.

Sure some will state, there's no prob with *X* ... Until something
comes along and bites them in the *packet* so for those who have
the equipment and the time for testing here's a concept
program for you...

 * brat.c (modified bubonic.c)
 * SoBigF concept: worm + BGP = backbone nightmare
