This may be interesting as our pkg_* tools do not (AFAIK) support
installing two versions of the same package.
We can have 2 packages: netbsd-package and onetbsd-package, with
netbsd-p installing kernel to /netbsd and onetbsd-p installing (possibly
the same) kernel to /onetbsd. Both packages will depend on the same
This will allow to have 2 kernels of different version to be installed
simultaneously - one as netbsd-package and the other as onetbsd-package.
(This could be further extended with netbsd.old-package. (idea from
boot(8) - boot order))
