I guess I'm not fully understanding the purpose of the packets
library. The definition of ccm messages is in its header file. It
would seem natural to me for composition and parsing to be there as
well. Furthermore, this is how it's done for lacp and "benign"
packets. It seems like a good place to put esoteric protocol specific
logic that is only interesting in creating the packets freeing up the
caller to deal with the logic of what actually belongs in there.
