[vbox-dev] [PATCH] UDPTunnel : new network interface backend to allow using this to link to GNS3 and QEMU instances over the network

I think my userspace QuickTun VPN software 
(http://wiki.ucis.nl/QuickTun) should be directly compatible with the 
GNS3 UDPTunnel protocol (using quicktun 'raw' protocol). This could 
allow the UDPTunnel implementation to be used for other purposes, as 
well as to support UDP tunnels in GNS3, in a guest OS or even on the 
host OS, without depending on a particular virtualization, or to 
overcome the limitation of 4 network interfaces. The QuickTun Linux 
software is opensource, the Windows version is currently closed.
