Me too.  The idea that we can't _ever_ remove software from the NetBSD
base distribution is one of the principal factors encouraging the recent
and horrific bloat of NetBSD.  The amount of disk required for a minimal
(base+etc) distribution has _doubled_ since 1.4.

  foolish and bewildered and astray: can any man?
