Yes, I was just playing around with getting the distribution to configure and
compile, so it should be just the user-space.
My primary objective is to port argus to open flow, to improve on the netflow/sflow strategies that are in place.
Argus provides flow auditing for L2, L3 and L4+ packet flows, and is used by a number of sites and
research groups to do operations, performance and security. Argus has a lot of attributes that IPFIX,
netflow/sflow/jflow etc.. don't have, like loss, jitter, connectivity, RTT, etc... and argus has a rich bi-directional
flow model which open flow may find useful.

I believe a full port would require (for user-space packet processing only) implementing a BSD netdev library. I started that for NetBSD a year or so ago, but never had a chance to complete it. I'm happy to pass that on to anyone that would like to pick it up.
