Hans, so your proposal is to split the current pdpcap in 2 different
objects: one for live (net device) capturing and a second one for pcap file

I like Mathieu's suggested name:1) the Mathieu's reasoning about naming,
 2)the objects I think is differentiated of pdp, 3)doesn't lost enterely his
original name pd-pcap,
