Thanks for you explanation (and the background I did not cite, but which
I completely agree). The "sooner or later" part explains it, I probably
read your original message more like "now".

I certainly agree that we should push for full support in NetBSD ASAP,
and I'm willing to help. Joerg, could you give more details? Do you
happen to have a list of the missing functions?
