It isn't possible under a traditional UNIX system. You need to be able
to open a raw socket and AFAIK Rev has no way to do it. It also
requires root access. Currently you would need the help of an external
or other process.
Under OSX I believe there is an alternative method (never used it
myself) that allows you to use a datagram socket rather than a raw one.
This negates the need for root access but I still don't think Rev would
give you access to this functionality.
Windows may be different again - not really my area.
