No, by checking the adapter *name*; types of devices are identified by the device name, not by flags.
And what you'd set in the pcap_create() routine would be the activate_op. You'd set that to point to the routine that actually opens the device; that routine would, in turn, set the other _op pointers.

You *could* submit it to tcpdump.org for inclusion in libpcap, but when that ended up in WinPcap is another matter.

I'm not one of the WinPcap core developers, so I don't know how they maintain that. (I'm a *libpcap* core developer, but my only contributions to WinPcap come from WinPcap being based on libpcap.)

If I have the time to do so, I could.
