NdisMIndicateStatus is a Miniport Driver fcn that calls ProtocolStatus(...) 
in all attached Protocol Drivers. In order to take this approach you would 
have to write and install a custom Protocol Driver (ala winpcap). Instead I 
would suggest looking at the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) 
interface. Use IWbemServices::ExecNotificationQueryAsync to register the 
events you wish to receive and supply a IWbemObjectSink derived consumer 
object for the events that WMI will then forward to you.

Yes, I for one would be interested in a non-cygwin implementation.
