NDISwrapper - in user space?

NDISwrapper - in user space?

I don't know much about this but...:

Wouldn't it be possible to move NDISwrapper into user space?

TAP, or somesuch, could shim the network device access. Getting
access to the hardware would be the tricky part, although it should
be fairly easy for USB dongles, and various mapping tricks
might work for 'normal' devices.

Of course, in userspace stack size is not much of an issue...
