	Sounds like you need a table of the following:

Platform   Chip Rating   NetBSD Rating   Native OS Rating

pmax        x mips         x-y mips       x-z mips
m68k        a mips         a-b mips       a-c mips

	That way you can compare what the processor should be
able to do vrs what NetBSD is able to get out of it, as well
as how well NetBSD stacks up to the native operating system
for the box.

	I would personally find such a table facinating.
