What do you mean by "send packets to the receive path"?

Does that mean that a packet "sent" to the receive path is *not* transmitted on the network interface, but, instead, appears as if it were a packet that had arrived on that interface (and is processed by the Windows networking stack)?

If so, then...

...it is *completely unrelated* to anything libpcap/WinPcap currently does, and therefore *should* be done with a new function call.
