	What would be the best method to assist them in this - would
	Furuta, Maekawa and Kanaoka also be interested in NetBSD
	developer access?

	Before embarking on such a project it might make sense to
	ask the existing NetBSD developers to look at a general
	overview of the design to ensure there is no later conflict.

	If there is any small way in which I can help to make this
	happen, please let me know!
