: while this is mostly true, in practice it may fall down a bit for
: "BSD-ish" systems with current development GCC (and perhaps previous
: version; i've never tried them).

However, in the places where it does fall over, there are already people
asking for this kind of code isolation.  So, moving headers used by
standalone code into src/sys/ seems quite appropriate.

I didn't say it was already in a workable state; this is just one step
needed to make standalone code isolation workable.  It's a worthwhile goal.
