It's nothing reasonable, just the overhead in typing and its look...
Perhaps also that I hadn't understood its exact use yet ;-)

They are not really visible at the same time; the userland network 
stack driver and the network stack driver for the kernel stack both 
have the same name (or else libnet.so would have some difficulties in 
talking to it).
IIRC the modules have to be recompiled as userland add-ons also (at 
least they were located in another directory for the userland stack), 
but I guess we could change this.
