This would be a good thing, I think.  However, there are issues with
putting lots of other programs into the tree.  I mean, I think CVS and
SUP should be there as well, since those are used by quite a few
people who run NetBSD.  :)

However, xntp, sup, and cvs would also make good packages us we had
good package installation tools.  :)
