Sorry I haven't gotten back sooner. They are definitely interesting, but
I am considering that it might be better to just get userspace to work
correctly when compiled as 64-bit (i.e. aim for 64/64 instead of 32/64).

Right now I am (as almost always) doing too many things at the same
time. I was hoping to get a new release out somewhere this month, but
what is in CVS still has some issues (currently doesn't compile on
cygwin/netbsd, crashes on NULL path names). I should get a little better
organized and make a list of what still needs to be done.

Well, I am always hesitant to break the kernel interface, so that part
might go in a bit later. I'll try to get most of the stuff that doesn't
force a kernel protocol change in the next release.
