Hi All,

As some of you have requested, I've extracted the code from my (under work)
VPN which talks to the TUN/TAP device under Linux (/dev/net/tun).

Some things to note:
1) I've only tested this under Linux.
2) The help-win.c file under cbits HAS allowed similar code to talk to the
TUN/TAP driver used by the OpenVPN project, but I haven't implemented this
functionality yet.
3) The help-bsd.c file under cbits HAS allowed Mac/BSD flavors to talk to a
TUN/TAP driver, but I've never tested this and haven't implemented this
functionality yet.

I don't have a whole lot there right now, but keep a lookout for more
releases with some examples and better docs (as I get around to it).

For a very verbose example, you can look at how I use the Network.TUNTAP
module in this project: http://github.com/sw17ch/Scurry, specifically
