I'd write a plugin and dump it out over the client protocol.

A good place to start is plugin-gpstxt - it shows how to do basic plugin setup and attach to the packet chain. That gets you the size of packets easily.

plugin-spectools shows you how to set up a new network protocol - look for RegisterProtocol.

basically you'd want to define a new protocol with your tuple fields, then attach to the packet chain, and send a sentence w/ your per packet data.

If you swing by #kismet on I can talk to you more about it realtime. I'm a bit under the weather so i might not respond immediately.
