I agree that negative options like this are undesirable.  As Quenti
suggests, perhaps there's a place we can make "options VMSWAP" be on
by default, and let those few users who need to put "no options
VMSWAP" in their config files, now that we can.

An MI equivalent to the 'include "arch/i386/conf/std.i386"' that
currently appears in the i386 configs, for example. =20

I think there's scope for reviewing how several of our sample/base
configs are maintained, especially with the new 'no ..' config syntax.
There are probably some other good examples of almost-always-needed
'options' that make more sense as an explicit 'no' override.

please don't, if there's a better way to be found. being obstinate
about fixing ugliness and frustrations has led to most of the best
things about netbsd.
