Yeah, but that's not how things used to work before, so my
question is if the kernel should be responsible for keeping
the subscription or the application.

If the admin puts down the interface and remove the module,
for instance, then the multicast subscription is gone.
Should the application monitor for that then?

David? Any thoughts?
