Any IP packet can't be sent if an ARP "handshake" has not been performed.
means that when you are snooping an IP packet you have already snooped an ARP
packet slightly before. In which case do we really win something ?
On top of that, don't you think that snooping *every* packet will badly affect
the performance ? Have you tried measuring the difference ?
