Sure, modulo licensing requirements. Why not? We made sup part of the
tree some time ago. Even server-side end.
CVS is already essential for anyone with commit access.

Another point is that for this to be an `official' service, we need
native netbsd binaries.  (Thats a very longstanding goal of NetBSD).
That means m3 running native on a `reasonable' range of NetBSD
platforms-- not wrapping some other OS'es binaries in a package.

So far we have zero ports running m3. Even just i386 and alpha (which
shuld be portable from freebsd) is not `reasonable', imho.
