   And what I'm pretty sure the majority of the readers on this list want
   is for those of you who really think it's necessary to do it yourselves.
   What? Nobody who wants to disable the policy knows how to do it? Hmmm, I
   wonder whether that's significant...

that's an impressively bold statement to make.  by my reconning, at
least 4 people who have posted "wanting no overcommit" are more than
capable of programming this for NetBSD.
