        This is what I would like to happen (similar to LTP with Linux), but it 
hasn't yet because of other items on my priority list of things to do. But, I 
would really like working with someone at NetBSD (and hopefully eventually 
DragonFlyBSD and OpenBSD) to make this a reality. Versioning would be the only 
difficult thing that would need to be properly thought out because functional 
requirements change over time, and as such some tests may or may not apply (or 
the requirements may be different) between multiple OS distro versions.
