Re: Using proplist ioctl's from within the kernel

I think it should be avoided at all costs. With proplists, you give up type
and you create a lot of overhead. This is acceptable for kernel-user interfaces
in some cases but not within the kernel.

I see; makes sense.

Type safety could be solved through the different prop_dictionary_get_*() functions though, I suppose.
