I think that by and large, the reason NetBSD does not have such a
person is because we don't want it to.   NetBSD is that set of Free
O.S. hackers who either believe in humility, or wish to be the leader
of a Free O.S. movement.   Kind of an odd mix, and it does ignite from
time to time, but you'll notice that the names don't change much - I
don't think any of us would have it any other way.   If we would, we'd
be in a different community.
