For now self.transport.socket.setsockopt(...SO_BROADCAST) (or maybe transport.skt, check) will do the trick. Obviously this is breaking abstraction, but it does work.

Add an issue about this to the bug tracker and assign it to me, and at some point I'll add a transport.allowBroadcast(bool) method.
