Yes, but the person experiencing the problem is not always capable of
reading code.  (On tech-kern that may be a more reasonable assumption,
and among developers even more so, but I'm sure there are lots of
NetBSD users who couldn't code their way out of a paper bag if you held
it upside down for them, even if they might be capable of fetching
distributions and typing "make".)
