What about YANK (Yet Another Network Kit) ?
Sorry, can't find any acronym from "Walter".

Beside that point, the /dev/net/* ethernet drivers we rely on to talk 
network cards can't be shared between concurrent etwork stacks.

Yep. However, as the kernel land is the main focus, I've put the 
code under /current/src/add-ons/kernel/net/*, even if their code 
can be compile as userland add-ons too.
I don't plan to put duplicated modules code into the userland 
add-ons directory (/current/src/add-ons/net/*) for this exact reason.
