I see a few messages over in HIPL-DEV on efforts along this line, but....

I have been told that there are a number of challenges for a 'tunneling 
app' on the Android, as you need root permissions to set up things like 
virtual interfaces and change default routes.  For example if you wanted 
to use TUN-TAP, it is supposedly NOT part of the kernel as shipped.

Do we have any Android development people here?
