I have several projects which are stalled for lack of a userport serial
driver.  First, and most importantly, is a configuration program for the
Comet BBS device which plugs into the userport and provides a virtual
internet modem.  You can make all the configuration changes manually in a
term, but it's very tedious and to make the user experience as seamless as
possible the device needs a menu-driven program to wrangle all of the
configuration options for the device.
