I have an openwrt package for curvetun in the pipe, which defeated all
the other userspace vpns I have tested, it was as fast encrypted as
openvpn non encrypted. I bet the fact that they use PF_RING bypass
makes a difference.

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
