Fancy that!  So there is (I'm using a USB image, not that it matters
now).  Thanks for clueing me in.  I'd somehow overlooked it as I
followed the default path through the installer menus.  At some point
it would be good to update the installation walkhrough in the NetBSD
guide to mention the existence of the Extended Partitioning option (as
well as to keep up with some of the other changes in sysinst); I might
take a look at that when I have more time.

The question in the subject line still stands though: I've learned from
and enjoyed the papers written about the design of various NetBSD
subsystems, and it'd be nice to have access to whatever was written
about the GSoC projects (assuming that anything *was* written and that
public redistribution is acceptable). Maybe a wiki page compiling links
to the relevant email threads?  That I could compile on my own, if
there's any interest.
