As Arnaud Lacombe says, he attempted the project in 2008.  He wrote some
code, but it was never finished & integrated.  My gut feeling is that
finishing & integrating a previous year's project is not a good present
year's project.

Arnaud found out that testing Teredo requires equipment, too, even if it
is "virtual" equipment. :-)

Did any 802.11 project especially interest you?

Most projects will require knowledge of the code; start reading, now. :-)
You should also get comfortable building the NetBSD kernel and userland
