I don't think so.  It seems to me that the last time you mentioned this it
was confirmed that NetBSD _never_ had this option.  So it would be hard to
change the default.

Perhaps it should be added as a called to sync(), so you can just hit it
4-5 times, have nothing happen, and just hit reset.  Then it would be just
like using ctrl-alt-del under Windows.
