The "starter" is still a work in progres. That is the reason it is not built
per default yet. At the moment this is not the highest priority for us. We
have not looked at it for a while, and I am sure it is broken at this point.

We always send the VendorID announcing that we support the DPD capability.
If no dpd paramters are present in *our* conn, we will not start sending
DPD packets. Though if the other end sends a DPD packet, we will respond
to it, as requires by RFC. This behavour changed somewhere in 2.1 or 2.2.
Before that, we only sent the VendorID if we had dpd enabled for the conn
