Yeah, instead of making one big mega object that takes lots of  
messages, there could instead be a suite of objects like one for live  
capture, one for reading/writing files, one for translating port  
numbers to services, whatever is appropriate.

If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into  
the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself  
of it.            - Thomas Jefferson
