I'd actually encourage somebody to write a set of standalone utilities
that could be run from MacOS, including:
	(1) copy file to/from NetBSD partition
	(2) 'ed' file on NetBSD partition (ed is your friend!)
	(3) fsck NetBSD partition

and maybe a few other things.  (don't need cat!  that's what "1,$p" is
for, in ed!  8-)
