What does your TAPI based application do?  Does it need (or provide?) 
access to some kind of hardware?  If it's not a standard piece of 
hardware, you may need to find a Linux device driver that supports it...

The main reasons TAPI isn't implemented are:

1) that modems are kind of old technology, so the incentive to implement 
it is rapidly disappearing
2) most of the interface that TAPI provides (dialing modems, and 
starting ppp) needs to be implemented natively anyway.
