Plan9 is not a complete port, and it doesn't even run terribly well. I have
the set of CD's here and I'm not impressed. Aside from that, we cannot use
Lucent Technologies' code because of the god awful copyright on it. I might
be able to write up how Lucent talks to the hardware and someone else could
reinvent the wheel, however, I need to look into my licenses again cause I
remember there was something about reengineering efforts and I don't want to
get into that mess again.
Further discussion of NetBSD/next should be moved to email@example.com.
