Argus support would be fantastic. I've had some experience with using its output from some well placed taps in grad school. I imagine that you will still need netdev support to receive the packets even in user-space on a Mac, but I may not be fully understanding what you're trying to accomplish. Let us know if you have any questions.

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.
