Maybe it was chance that I didn't hit a bug in the netbsd version I tested
with, however, it is my personal (and very subjective) experience that a
lot of functionality in freebsd was written to support existing programs
only, without making a full implementation. while netbsd might use simpler
but more correct implementations and openbsd just returns ENOSYS on every
function call. Or so.
