Wouter, how does nbd perform? Do you think a root-on-nbd sy‐
stem could help with the issue of dead old hard discs on the
older buildds? (I know some OpenBSD developers use NFS, but,
it’s known as Nightmare File System not without reason, so I
thought to ask whether NBD would be suitable.)

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.	-- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
