i think the OpenBSD kernel is probably more interesting.  IIRC, it
was originally based on the NetBSD kernel, which runs on a lot more
architectures than FreeBSD....and on a lot of architectures which Linux
doesn't run on.

i don't think many people who are interested in Debian GNU/*BSD are at
all interested in the bsd userland, as that wouldn't be debian.  The
interesting thing would be debian running on another kernel.
