You know, I think this is symptomatic of the disagreement. 

The issue at stake is whether ``working for some favoured ports'',
(due to a crappy, for NetBSD's purposes, implementation) counts as a
``working' NetBSD service.  Especially since there are no plans
and no commitments to make the service generally avaiable.

You obviously think it does.

I don't.  I think the onus to make it generaly available belongs with
those who want it.  I don't know what your take is there, but Greg's
is, unabashedly, to declare that some ports are less equal than others.
And I see *that* as contrary to the goals of the project.
