I hate to be seen as encouraging SYSVism, which we all know is NIH,
and therefore unacceptable...

But this is a damn good system.  I like it.  It is the number one thing
I miss about administering SVR4.  No matter *WHAT* is attached, I like
to have a way to say "*I* know that this disk will always, forever, be
SCSI ID 2 on the 1st SCSI controller attached to this system".

I really like that.  I'm into it.  I prefer 'sd0' for stable parts of a
system, but I'd love to have /dev/disk/cNtNdN or something similar.
