I may have missed something here, but:
are there _any_ implementations of m3 which are capable of running
CVSup which run natively (i.e. not under emulation) on _any_ netbsd
platform? (Last i checked, at least SRC m3 ran on no NetBSD platforms,
but I haven't checked since before I left Digital 8-9 months ago.)
Note also that there's a big difference between a simple piece of
software and a language that needs to be ported to run a somewhat
complex piece of software to access a service.
To be honest, i wouldn't start advocating a NetBSD CVSup service
until, say, half of the architectures NetBSD supports have a working
native m3 implementation capable of running it.
