Well, it *is* very tempting to have a go at doing a stack of our own, especially since there all of a sudden are several developers who want to start working on the netstack. Furthermore, it should prove very helpful that there's at least three different sources to look at (and copy functionality from): FreeBSD, our current stack and Marrow (don't know about all you other guys, but I intend to check that one out, too).
So are we going to have some kind of official decision about this then? New stack or port?
I'd love a new and very clean netstack ala Haiku! :)
I think I'd vote for the new stack, it will be more work, but not that much more, considering how the FreeBSD code looks. Of course it would be a pain to integrate (leave alone) implement IPsec, but I don't know if that'll be necessary anyway.
IPsec is a MUST for IPv6. It is part of the standard.
