	The history page for login_cap(3) says
	     The login_getclass family of functions appeared in NetBSD 1.5.
	While this is true, it might be more polite to our benefactors to
	     The login_getclass family of functions first appeared in BSD/OS,
	     and appears in NetBSD 1.5 by kind permission.
	or something similar.  It is relevant to a potential user that the
	'login.conf' implementation is compatible with the BSDI one, and it's
	polite to give credit in the documentation, even if the license
	doesn't explicitly require it.

	Work for BSDI.  Contribute code to NetBSD.  ;-)

	(I didn't write the code, but I was involved in getting a copy to the
	guy who did the port, I believe.)

	Just a couple kind words.  :)
