I'd like to add some stubs I've written for some of the SUSv2 (derived from
System V) stuff I've written that maps back to BSD functions in various
ways.  There's a utmpx implementation that points back to utmp, statvfs that
points at statfs, and a bunch of other little bits.  With a little more
work, I could provide almost enough to make NetBSD SUSv2 compliant.

Though there may be reason to implement some of these at a lower level in
the long run, I was considering making a static-link compatibility library
for such stubs.  This way, changing any of the header files and/or
structures in these stubs at a later date, replaced with fully
NetBSD-supported libc and/or kernel versions, would not be as much of a
compatibility issue.
