Well, personally, I think sup is fairly easy to use.

Cvsup, while it's probably better than sup in more ways than one,
is as far as I know a bit difficult for NetBSD to adopt, since it
is at best difficult to build on a few of the platforms NetBSD
supports due to it being written in Modula-3.

However, I seem to remember some improvements coming our way for
making the NetBSD sources more accessible.  Stay tuned.
