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.
