The surest way to discover whether something is easy is to try it.  If
it's easy, then it's easily done.  If it's not, then it's not.

I don't want to sound as if I'm putting myself up as some kind of expert
on this.  (Beware of all experts: an ex is a has-been, and a spurt is a
drip under pressure.)  My only direct experience with this has been
writing a Win32 kernel driver to do ROT13 disk access: it isn't like I'm
an authority on filesystem implementation.

All this being said, "I wouldn't have thought it would be that hard..."
is the sort of thing I found myself saying, oh, a few *hundred* times
while writing that toy little Win32 driver.  Just sayin'.  :)
