All of it.
That's what backwards compatilibity is about, and I hope that we take
yup. COMPAT_43 means, among other things, that <sgtty.h> works. for
BSD, that's pretty important. i know that xterm until at least recently
was still using <sgtty.h> on NetBSD. also, note that, eg, COMPAT_SUNOS
depends on part of COMPAT_09.
