Casper uses squashfs, unionfs, /sys/block, udev, klibc, if these tools are
available to KfreeBSD maybe it will work out of the box, otherwise a
replacement (or a clone) for these features is needed.
In other words Casper should be extended to do what Freesbie guys
are doing with their code. AFAIK, there's no squashfs, but there's
unionfs and probably /sys/block and udev can be easily worked around.
I dunno about how to use a klibc replacement but maybe the kFreeBSD
porters can shed some light.
