I was surprised to find IAXmodem (http://iaxmodem.sourceforge.net/), which
is "a software modem written in C that uses an IAX channel (commonly
provided by an Asterisk PBX system) instead of a traditional phone line and
uses a DSP library instead of DSP hardware chipsets."

It appears to be limited to 14.4k due to patent issues and handles faxes
only, but its existence suggests writing a software-only data modem should
be possible.
