Yes. I will actually join the anti-sysV crowd in saying that I currently
perceive no need for a fully populated /dev/dsk. :)
BTW, one thing I'd love about a "good" implementation is the possibility
of having multiple ways to reach the same object. Thus,
could all refer to a disk (SCSI id 3) on the first ahc controller on the PCI
bus, which is the second controller in the system.
For that matter, we could go the whole Plan 9 route ... Okay, maybe that's
a bit drastic.
