True. I misphrased that. I meant to say 'even if I add support for all
our FS types, only certain programs would suffer.'

Easy. And I'll recommend now that we rewrite /etc/rc in m3, and
move to an /etc/rc.d/ model, if that helps? ;-)

Actually. I hope to get a native i386 version working, then start
cross-compiling native compilers for the other archs I have.

I'll let people know when I've got something real to speak of.
