Well, perhaps and perhaps not.  The VM subsystem is rather pervasive though,
so it would quite likely be more than trivial to port.

There are a lot of phantom projects floating around.  This was one of them...
Some time ago (6 months?) "someone" was working on porting the FreeBSD VM
system to NetBSD.  I don't know what happened to that.  I never knew who
was even doing it.
