Keeping the API as close to Darwin as possible is a Good Thing
for some applications, such as the Arla AFS client, which
currently shares much kernel-module code for Darwin and NetBSD.

I for one think that further divergence would be a hassle to
work around as I try to keep Arla working enough for my needs
on NetBSD.
