Would it be a waste of time just to rewrite it because of modula-3 ?

If it does run only on limited NetBSD platforms just because lack of
compiler , then why not use it at least on those platforms.?

I run sup over a modem and it is really slow , if CVSup uses the bandwidth
more efficiently why not offer the service , it's only additional means of
getting software transferred.

btw. is it possible to install the client directly from freebsd or has
someone already made a NetBSD package ?
