Somebody a long time ago Sep.94 wrote a ypserv that works 
(though it's far from perfect.) with the ypclients in netbsd,
for simple things as 'passwd' and 'group'. You can find
the src of it somewhere under pub/NetBSD/ports/src
on this machine.

I use it sporadically when using diskless stations.

The cost of living hasn't affected it's popularity. (unknown)
