Um, that rather presupposes that OpenBSD has in fact made significant
security-related changes _which aren't also in NetBSD_.

Which is precisely the reason I asked for a comparison of the two
codebases: to see just what is behind those claims.

Other than crypto distribution, what has OpenBSD acutally done that
NetBSD hasn't?  I mean, it's not like no NetbSD developers follow
BUGTRAQ, now is it?
