      Adding a new flume source for generic unicast and multicast UDP.

      Description

      There are existent TCP (NetcatSource) and UDP Syslog (SyslogUDPSource) sources for Flume, but nothing that is able to easily consume plain ol' UDP streams. My use case includes unicast UDP, as well as multicast streams.

      I'm working on coding up a generic UDPSource for the Wikimedia Foundation, and was wondering if this would be useful to the Flume community at large. If so, here are some questions:

      If I made a generic UDPSource, a lot could be DRYed and abstracted out of SyslogUDPSource, with SyslogUDPSource becomfing a subclass. Should I bother doing this? I'd almost rather not, as I won't personally be using SyslogUDPSource, so I'd rather not have to test changes there.

      Should UDPSource code live in flume-ng-sources, or in flume-ng-core/src/main/.../sources?
