hmm.. so then how can you claim that it is "entirely different" (as you did
in an earlier email)?  It sounds like you're talking our of your, ahem.. depth.

Have you tried actually comparing the current NetBSD ffs sources against
whatever "Unix" sources you are talking about?  While I'm sure that there
are many "attributes" that are shared, if you even compare the current NetBSD
sources with those from, say, 1994, you will find a ton of differences.
