I was thinking what was meant was the cut and paste functionality, I'd
really love to have that in NetBSD console. That's what the moused daemon
does in FreeBSD, or at least, that's what it did the last time I used

Is it moused in FreeBSD that does the /dev/sysmouse stuff? I can't remember
if that was handled by moused, or the kernel, as wsmouse is.
