I'm curious here, but why did the *kernel* diverge for each project?
Like, I understand (or think I do) the philosophy of the OpenBSD project,
and that is high security ... but, wouldn't the security improvements that
go into the OpenBSD kernel not be applicable to NetBSD / FreeBSD? At this
point, I couldn't imagine merging, but when OpenBSD first branched off,
one would think it would have been fairly easy to keep the *kernel* itself
relatively in sync, no? Especially the code audit that I imagine went
into securing the OpenBSD kernel itself ...
