It's not about only using the tgt framework. There are many other

Hopefully, the tgt framework will be merged into mainline. After that,
I'll rewrite the large portion of IET. The iSCSI target implementation
for tgt will be completely different from IET.

If I successfully make the new iSCSI implementation as stable as the
current IET code, I'll stop maintaining IET.
