 Greg Woods, der Mouse and you should make a club.  You guys obviously
 have a conspiracy theory going on.  You're NetBSD's Lone Gunmen.
 Had you read the original report, you'd have seen that the reporter
 installed a 5.0 system using a 4.0.1 installation CD.
 So now, please stop complaining about all the great evils you imagine
 NetBSD developers are up to.  It's getting harder to care about people
 like you because there is little gratification in doing so, and at some
 point it harms moving forward.
