I entirely agree, and I actually feel quite guilty for that.  I couldn't
find time to finish nmount and I'm the only one to blame here.  I'm not
even particularly happy with how nmount(2) looks right now.  I wanted to
remove nmount from the CVS repository, and suggested that to Poul, since
I wrote this code under his guidance some time ago now.  He didn't want
me to remove the code so I just left it as is.
