Sorry, I've heard most of this already. If can add anything else,
like "why you think it's good?" or "what pitfalls you see?",
perhaps we could expand the conversation?

BTW, tommorrow is the last day I can talk on the NetBSD mailing
list. Day after tommorrow, I'm off to FreeBSD, then Linux, and
lastly OpenSSH (if they have a ML). Most of my new years will
be spent reading FAQs and articles on SSH.

Anything you can add will be help. :-)
