	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!
