"We'll let the NetBSD guys rip off the stable FreeBSD SMP code and get
it hacked in place before we even think about it, since we're not really
sure how to do it without an example in front of us.  Oh, and we'll
tighten up the security along the way."

The OpenBSD crowd, from my experience and from comments by programmer
friends, do know how to program quite securely, but they are apparently
crappy coders when it comes to all other aspects.
