BTW, NetBSD gets a lot out of the tight integration of the libraries
and kernel. What we get is completely seamless integration -- and that
buys us quite a bit.

In general, I can see why one would want to combine the advantages of
Debian and NetBSD, but I can't see why one would want to produce
something less functional than either. I think if you replace too much
of NetBSD in doing what you're trying to do, you just end up with a
crippled Linux rather than something synergetic.
