An NFS lockd/statd combo, even if it is technically a broken
protocol, would be nice so NetBSD could be a viable alternative
NFS server in commercial environments where lockd/statd is
required, even if it is broken...
The YP server implementation would be a nice thing to have in
the tree as well! Someone was working on this a year ago, did
it dry up and blow away in the wind? B^(. NIS+ extentions might
be nice too but a simple YP server + lockd/statd is all NetBSD
needs to completely replace commercial NFS/NIS servers!
