/// \brief Perform Bad Packet Scan
///
/// Scans the server by sending a sequence of (potentially) bad packets and
/// printing the packet settings and the response received.  The principle
/// raison d'etre for this is to check if a bad packet will cause a crash.
///
/// This particular version of the code allows a set of ranges to be set for
/// each field in the "flags" word (the third and fourth bytes) of a DNS
/// message. (Most of the flags are single-bit values, so the range is just 0-1.
/// The OPCODE and RCODE are both four bits wide, so the range is 0-15.)  The
/// program then sends packets containing each combination of values.
///
/// TODO: Extend the program to other bad values.
/// Examples of this would be to make the count fields invalid, to add data
/// to sections that should be empty, and to deliberately mangle the names in
/// these sections.
