I remember reading about a project that was planned just the other way 
'round, AmigaOS running as a task under NetBSD. Shouldn't this be a lot 
easier? I suppose running a UNIX OS under AmigaOS would lead to big 
problems with memory management and supervisor mode and such. And what 
about crash protection? NetBSD is very stable and a crashing AmigaOS task 
could simply be killed...not so easy under AmigaOS.
