Which is not recommended except you don't mind running into bugs and  
getting coredumps from some programs. We know about this and Roman is  
working on it, so we're not interested in such reports, in case  
someone tries this. We're only interested in reports about use of not  
implemented syscalls. In case someone plays with the osrelease sysctl,  
please tell us about it when submitting reports about unimplemented

Yes, I want to see which sysctl's (and other stuff like ioctl's) may  
be used _now_ but are not implemented.
