In Twisted 2.0 there's a flag to listenMulticast that lets you do this.
Also look in my sandbox for some prelim zeroconf code (enough to be able
to read info, not good enough to publish).

On Linux there seems to be a movement to standardize on the howl
mdnsresponder, but that'll take a while. Probably you want your mdns
library to use system version if available, otherwise its own.
