Well, I may as well quit lurking then.. 

I was just going to listen because I don't currently have time to 
contribute to development. I have no NetBSD box at the moment but should 
have one in a month or two.

Has anyone thought of trying to graft the NetBSD kernel onto a Linux 
binary userland? Or, to put it another way, of running userland under 
Linux binary emulation? The reason I ask this is that with some 
sufficiently hacked scripts, and GRUB it seems to me that it might be 
possible to run GNU/Linux and GNU/NetBSD off the same partition. 

This would probably require some fresh development, but I'm game. 

This gives GNU users a choice of kernels (yay!), NetBSD some exposure, and 
helps to illustrate better than words the distinction between the OS 
kernel, and the rest of the OS.
