In fact, I don't. Plus, it's sound enough tasks...

Helping making our current network stack working is the top priority.
There's a userland version of this stack. It allow us to run it hosted 
by an userland app.
You'll learn more about it here:
And here :

Note that it's not up-to-date version, and you may want to replace 
parts by newers built from our CVS.

The route and traceroute don't work yet, and I suspect that because 
they can't open route sockets.
Mostly because we don't have the old/pre-newtree move route module
