I've been monitoring the nfsv4 wg list, and have been planning to do
an implementation for NetBSD. But so far I did not get around to it, and
it has been a while since I read the draft spec, so don't let me
stop you :-) What's been bothering me about the current situation, is
that we need a cleaner kernel RPC interface, otherwise an NFSv4
implementation could get ugly. But again, I haven't started yet.
However, I'd be happy to work with you on things, or test.
