As one of our main features for 0.3, we can't progress out of the 0.2.*
releases until it is either complete, or the goalposts are moved.
With nobody working on networking at the moment, 0.2.8 seems likely and I'm
starting to wonder how far into the 0.2.* releases we are going to go.

Also, at what stage will the network model be enough to satisfy a 0.3
Does this just mean stable, basic TCP/IP with basic ws2_32 support? 
How many drivers need to be supported?
What about service providers for ws2_32.dll (Mswsock.dll is stubbed apart
from TransmitFile, and Wshtcpip.dll is non existent)
What about NDIS?

Change in circumstances has just released most of my evenings now, however
although I'm starting to work on networking apps, and hopefully soon User
Mode code, my coding skills and windows knowledge are not yet up to a level
where I can tackle the more in-depth stuff, especially kernel mode (eek)

Does any one plan to, or is anyone going to volunteer to take up networking?
I would be more than happy to throw all my spare time into helping them in
any way possible.

If we glean some information from this email, I can start to document it in
the wiki (we don't have much networking documentation in there at the
