The only issue with this is that the Linux box is not acting as a

properly get my application to 'color' the traffic.  standard BSD
sockets appear to have no concept of 'Labels'.

Just FYI: on OpenBSD you can set the VRF (aka "routing table" or
"routing domain") per socket with code like this:

  int s, table;
  s = socket(...);
  table = 123;
  setsockopt(s, IPPROTO_IP, SO_RTABLE, &table, sizeof(table));
