Yeah, I remember them.  I still think it was nice to be able to branch
two drives off one controller.

Not so much masochistic as wishing to make as much use of my available
resources before needing to buy more.

I don't see how this would truly complicate things.  Autoconf
already supports targets and LUNs; the only problem would lie in
the hardware.

Unless, of course, the kernel autoconf support is merely a veneer
to hide our not dealing with multiple LUNs, but, frankly, given
the history of NetBSD and BSD in general, I find this highly unlikely.
BSD's always been quality code, from my POV.
