Addressing your disappointment:  This is a free software project.
Code gets written because some actual human being writes it ;)
If you're waiting for somebody else to write it, you may be waiting
for a long long time...

There will be a new interface.  More on that when it becomes available.

Each frame to be transmitted will have a timestamp that specifies the
time that it is to be transmitted.  You still have to sync the sample
clocks and LO's on the separate USRPs, but there will be a way to
communicate, in-band, when you want the frame to be transmitted.

Low-level design ideas are described here:


They are subject to change...
