Ah, that's not going to work in my case. The sound source is a stable
permanent server, but the sound sink is my sometimes-running laptop,
which may or may not be running, and DHCPs for its IP address. So the
sound has to be pulled from the server by the laptop, not pushed to the
laptop from the server.

So where do I get this new tunnel module from?
