I'm working on patches for the deprecation bits (targeting 3.6 for now; will work my way up from there) for review, including documentation. Unless someone tells me to stop. :-)

In an attempt to make this not-so-Linux-specific, I'm reviewing how this works on non-Linux platforms (MacOS, FreeBSD) as well.

Reading Linux's socket(7) man page makes it seem like reuse_port is the issue (but that actually has protections to ensure you're only doing it across the same UID at least). I had to write my own test jig to (re-)convince myself that, indeed, reuse_addr is the problem.
