NAME

     out the other hooks.  Packets are not altered in any way.

HOOKS
     A hub node	accepts	any request to connect,	regardless of the hook name,
     as	long as	the name is unique.

CONTROL	MESSAGES
     This node type supports only the generic control messages.

SHUTDOWN
     This node shuts down upon receipt of a NGM_SHUTDOWN control message, or
     when all hooks have been disconnected.
