Do you want to work up a patch for /etc/rc or at least the outline of
the idea to sent out for wider exposure?  JR told me in private e-mail
that he will be mostly out of contact until next Tuesday so one of us
needs to do it.  I've got more build testing to do on my ifnet patch,
a few changes to dig up that I forgot I hadn't committed, and some
real-job work to do before tomarrow so I'd rather it wasn't me.  I think
JR's localpkg changes in gnats are right subject to some testing.
