In general, everything that needs some definitions made in another file
would be optimal. I've stumbled across netinet/ip.h wanting type n_time,
which I found to be defined in netinet/in_systm.h today, and it's probably
some others.  (And I guess I better don't ask that source level
compatibility w/ some penguin driven OS would be nice in that area - but
then what do I know about anything of either's network programming :-/)
