Sometimes, people who write documentation of read/verify the code
are more important than whose who write it. "is good enough" for what?
AFAIK Manuel Bouyer still use old bulk build framework.
The same for others.

Ok, thank you very much for all your efforts. But how about official
NetBSD Foundation's/commiters' position about binary packages and tools 
for managing them? This question is probably not for you personally.

One my friend (FreeBSD user) tells me that building software (always!)
is a BSD-way. I don't believe him ;-)
Yes, I'm from that world you hate ;-)
