[and other presumptions on what to do about dickless clients]
Regarding /sys. No, it _doesn't_ belong in base. One could argue that
it points "inconveniently" to /usr/src/sys, but as has been pointed out,
/usr/src is the customary place to put sources, this should really not
be a problem. If you're going to modify the legacy, you get what you
/sys belongs in the source distribution, since if you don't have
source, you won't need /sys.
