Both, actually.  I guess they don't come from the same group, do they?

I haven't hit it hard with a lot of multithreaded stuff.  I don't think
OpenBSD has kernel-threads yet, but there's a lot of work happening in
that area, or, at least it seems to be from watching the lists.

Definitely.  While the typical answer to any OpenBSD from any OpenBSD
maintainer is "RTFM", you can actually -find- what you want to know in
"TFM".  Beyond that, the maintainers are really, really anal about
having good documentation that is grammatically correct.

AFS is one of those things that I've always wanted to play with, but
never had a chance (or real need) to.  My fiancee goes to MIT, and they
use AFS there.  It seemed to be -really- slick when it worked properly.
