#  Converting "integrated third party" documents to mdoc(7) format might
#  not be a good idea, at least not without converting all the ones for a
#  given "package" and not without adjusting the "*2netbsd" script so that
#  "vendor" changes in new versions will be noted and can be manually
#  merged into the new format documents.

So I've apparently backed myself into a corner with this one.

I can't back it out, because then our manpage would still suck.
I can't back it out to man format, because ipf couldn't take my
netbsd-kernel-specific changes back into thier tree anyway.

So I guess now all I can do is fiddle with the *2netbsd script...  sigh.
