Idea wanted; block disk on network (SC101T)

Guys, who are a type of curiosity loving,

I'm toy'ing an idea to have filesys on cheap SAN devices.  The
block block is Netgear SC101T and/or Zetera NBOD.  (Yes,
I'm aware of what OS insides in them;  grab the firmware and
run strings on them).  Although the UDP-SAN wire protocol is
not disclosed (yet), Linux camp already has a working program
to use SC101 SAN as "network block device." I think it's _kool_
and want to practice the NetBSD way.  My Q is;

Q. how can I build block IO device driver "plumb'ing" UDP-SAN
data pipe?  I assume puffs/refuse would be more/less useful
