My main problem is that I don't have a full MS compiler suite, so
I can't recompile the driver.  It appears to cost around $800
for the compiler suite, so I'd like to avoid that if possible!

How hard would it be to apply the same fix to the latest release and build an installable target? If this is difficult, do you have a packaged version of the 2.3 release? I would be happy to try it out on win2k and win-xp to see how it works for a bridge.

I would be willing to pay for a packaged version of winpcap that
supported bridging via the changes mentioned above...

Me too...
