We would like to create Ethernet frames that carry various protocols, but would settle for just IP packets.

	AFAIK there is no such tool. You might try using Inline with the
C library 'libnet', which is also used as the basis for tcpdump, etc.
	Of course I'm probably wrong as usual and someone has already written
a Perl interface for it.
