So it seems that to use 4.xbsd machine as a slip server (ie. I want a 4.x
machine to talk to a PC via slip, giving a PC network access), there
would be some simple software needed to pass packets from the slip driver to
the regular ip driver. Has anyone written such software?

Perhaps there is some other documentation of the framing scheme?
