This is excellent, thanks!  It's very good to have this in the tree.

One thought though, can the userland daemon have a better name?
"cached" is pretty vague as to what exactly it caches, and "nscd" seems
to be the universal name for this sort of thing.

This is not to detract from the work here - this really is something
FreeBSD has needed for a long time.  Thanks again!
