Sounds good to me.  Doesn't make things too win95 like (Hey, I'm the
Computer, I know better what the user wants!), is compatible with the
way NetBSD works now, doesn't force the user to use the new way,
doesn't require zillions of symlinks, doesn't require a new pseudo
filesystem...  I vote for this one. :)
