Let me try to make things more clear: Miredo is *already* a userland
implementation that *already* works on NetBSD.  Thus, it is hard to
see how we could approve (or Google could approve) a Summer of Code
project to do what Miredo already does.

An in-kernel implementation would be very worthwhile, and, as David
points out, could share code with some of the several other protocl
translators and tunnel encapsulations in the kernel.
