For the moment I don't think our story for 3rd-party-tree nss plugins
is good enough for that, but when/if we ever manage the libc bump
fixing *that* is high on my list, and at that point it should
definitely at least be kicked out of libc.

(and from that point moving it to pkgsrc is fairly straightforward)

But I doubt anyone is putting in any *new* yp installs these days.
