	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.
