I wrote the userspace userconf interface; adding the ability to dump  
the current config shouldn't be too difficult.

Here's a "screenshot":

	$ ./bootprops userconf netbsd.plist -l
	disable isapnp
	disable acpi
	$ ./bootprops userconf netbsd.plist -d "disable isapnp"
	$ ./bootprops userconf netbsd.plist -a "disable ehci"
	$ ./bootprops userconf netbsd.plist -l
	disable acpi
	disable ehci
