exactly. current comes with the caveat that it's not even guaranteed
to compile (http://www.netbsd.org/Releases/current.html)
NetBSD-current is a daily snapshot of the NetBSD development source
tree. Because it is ``work in progress,'' it may not be particularly
well tested, and it may not even compile.
i think that sort of *implies* that it might not work exactly right
from day to day.

um...so we're too good? ;-)
