Status of COMPAT_LINUX and Linux emulation?

I noticed that COMPAT_LINUX was removed from GENERIC kernel configuration file but still could be used.

So far, I left it in my custom kernel config, figuring it would do no harm when not used, and might possibly be useful under certain circumstances.

I would guess that running Linux binaries under NetBSD (and64 or i386) would be very unreliable since it was removed from GENERIC.

Has experience running Linux programs in NetBSD been generally negative or high-risk?

FreeBSD has Linuxulator which seems to be doing at least fairly well and in no danger of being removed any time soon.
