Cool - Thanks!

In no particular order here's what we're looking to work on..
1) Better portability
2) GDB compatibility
3) Extreme scalability
6) Scripting support (extending and embedding lua or python)

Is any of this particularly useful or interesting to others?  Anything
else people would care about?  I need to fish out the netbsd login
details I have and see if I can get one of our engineers to look at
the above issues.  The trouble spots are probably already wrapped in
#if and hopefully not too hard to resolve.
