Sorry, but 1:1 threading is not going away. As others have pointed out, if
you need stability then you automatically need to use a release branch of
NetBSD. That is our stated position, and it's plain as day:

    -current is normally an alpha quality distribution. It isn't
    even guaranteed to compile.

One comfort you can draw from that is the 1:1 changes will not become
mainstream until NetBSD 5.0 is released - a whole two major versions
