poking around at kernels...). You could still argue that OS X is not
a good example of a modern BSD userland of course - I don't spend
enough time with *BSD to really know what they are like, other than
that, for the most part, everything has been replaced by GNU versions
of itself in all of these systems :-). i guess OS X is kind of like
what I would have hoped a BSD might turn into in some sense.
