Hi all,
I've just found out that the default configuration of mod_python with  
Apache 2.2 won't run on NetBSD 4.0. The problem is that mod_python  
creates a bunch of semaphores and then croaks when it can't create  
enough semaphores.

I know several ways to fix this, so now my problem is working out  
which category to file the PR under. I could file it under 'pkg'  
because mod_python uses too many semaphores, or I could file it under  
'kern' because the default kernel has only ten semaphores, which  
really isn't very many.

Does anyone want to own this?
