in places where different bsd's have different api's in name only, or in
minor things like parameter order or structure name, they should converge.

BSD 4.4 had something called a System Interface.  perhaps Kirk could be
convinced to publish an updated version of it that both freebsd and netbsd
could conform to, whenever some API difference is a matter of style rather
than vision/scope?
