Up till now this has struck me as a kind of ensurance no one's going
around yelling NetBSD sucks when he's testing -current ;> I have to
say that after year(s?) of -current surfing, I've NEVER had a problem
like that when I only relied on the "primary" stuff (no softdeps [will
those ever be stable ?] for example), which saddens me. Uhm I mean it's
sad that we've broken that myth for me now too :)
