Chuck McCrobie provided me with an ODS2 filesystem driver for FreeBSD
about 6 months ago.  It mostly worked and I was in the process of updating
it for -CURRENT when a house move interrupted me.

Maybe it could be ported to NetBSD with a little effort.

I've been given permission to commit it to FreeBSD when the time comes so
I doubt he'd have any problems with me sharing the source here.
