Uflood and ucast are tricky since they need root access, afaik.  Fine
if you are building custom hardware, but not feasible for consumer

If you want something on the roadmap, you either make it and
contribute it, or find someone willing to make it for you. iMatix is
happy to help with that latter option. I'd suggest UDP+TCP based
multicast as a first step up over plain TCP.

BTW you can check out the Zyre project (Chapter 8 of the Guide) which
is designed (among other things) for groups of WiFi-connected devices.
