Unfortunately, is
the best blog post I have seen so far on this topic. There is also still
the chance, as mentioned in that post, that Apple updates NetworkDriverKit
to provide support for creating tap-like devices from userspace. I'm not
necessarily holding my breath though.

Thorsten, supposing such an API were developed as you suggested, what is
the likelihood use of such an API could be pushed into sys_tun_open and its
associated functions? I am weighing the risk of creating such a general API
only to see that it will be difficult to have its use integrated into ssh.
