  Sigh.  So I see you're at it again.

  You are obviously quite obsessed with chopping out functionality that
you have unilaterally decided is not worth having in NetBSD anymore.

  Just who the hell do you think you are, anyway, and why are you so
obsessed with trashing everything that existed before you graced us with
your presence?

  If you have such a problem with the COMPAT_* layers, go fix them.  I
realize that would be more work, and it'd be easier to just trash them,
but that's not what NetBSD is about, and your attitude about this is
most unwelcome, coming from this NetBSD user since v0.9.

  You need a serious adjustment of perspective.  As others have
suggested, please go read about what NetBSD is, its clearly-stated
mission, and its spirit.
