The implementation is very simple. Everything is done in
lookup() (kern/vfs_lookup.c). Currently only @sys, @cpu,
@host, and @bin (the type of the running binary) are
implemented. I'm probably going to add any magic variables
NetBSD has, so that booting either Mach/Lites or NetBSD would
be even more flexible. Currently there is a problem with
/netbsd symlink which has to point to the Lites server in Mach
and the running kernel in NetBSD.
