That would be a good thing. Particularly if you get it committed somewhat
soon, then it could be tested and documented before the branch for the next
major release of NetBSD. Does your sysinst create a swap file on the root
filesystem, or somehow else deal with an OSX-created APM lacking a swap
Alternatively, do you think you could recompile pdisk for OSX so we could
pre-partition and make normal NetBSD root/swap?
