// Sends UDP packets to the given IP address at the given interval.
// Compatible with both ~Ipv4 and ~Ipv6.
// The sending interval can be a constant or a random value (e.g. exponential(1)).
// If the destAddresses parameter contains more than one address, one
// of them is randomly chosen for each packet. An address may be given in the
// dotted decimal notation, or with the module name. (The L3AddressResolver
// class is used to resolve the address.) To disable the model, set
// destAddresses to "".
// Received packets are discarded.
// The peer can be a ~UdpSink, another ~UdpBasicApp (it handles received packets
// like ~UdpSink), or a ~UdpEchoApp. When used with ~UdpEchoApp, the rcvdPkLifetime
// statistic will contain the round-trip times.
