SCTP API

Doing SCTP alone does not help much, and yet, all sorts of different efforts
will cover it good enough.  I think that we should move focus up to M3UA.
It is fairly easy to write a (minimalist) C-Node bridge between vendor
specific SCTP end-point and Erlang. Such a bridge should  push/pull
messages up (Erlang) and down (SCTP). A pure Erlang based M3UA would process
these messages and push/pull it to/from upper layers.

A similar bridge may be written north-bound, between existing SCTP/TCAP/MAP
(ok... ISUP, INAP as well) implementations and Erlang-based M3UA.
