As I said, there are changes on the HEAD-as-of-yesterday that are HIGHLY
desirable to have on the netbsd-1-6 branch but which are not yet there.

It would be "A Very Good And Desirable Thing(tm)" to merge the entire
HEAD-as-of-yesterday to the netbsd-1-6 branch.

Indeed I was _very_ surprised that the xsrc module was not re-branched
entirely for the 1.6.2 release (or that the entire HEAD was not merged
to the branch, whichever).  There's really no point to wasting time
doing individual pullups in what's essentially one big application
that's supposed to be backwards compatible to all existing _STABLE
branches anyway.  There's a tiny bit of effort necessary to re-jiggle
the distrib/sets/lists/x*/* files, but that's quite easy to do.
