In case you hadn't heard, OpenBSD has a new protocol in -current called 
CARP (Common Address Redundancy Protocol) to facilitate automatic 
failover and load-balancing.

This is great news to me, a networker who has wanted these features for 
my BSD routers, firewalls, and servers for years.  It would be even 
greater news if CARP was incorporated into NetBSD.

Will NetBSD implement CARP in the future, or some other VRRP 
alternative?  Or, is CARP still too young and volatile to consider for
