/dev/drum versus libkvm?

I notice that libkvm uses some values defined in <sys/paths.h>
but one of those paths doesn't exist in DragonFly:
#define __SYS_PATH_DRUM "/dev/drum"
<sigh> The joke's on me again. After reading thru the sourcecode
for libkvm I see that the kvm_open() function completely *ignores* its
third argument, and that's the argument that would have used /dev/drum.
So it doesn't matter after all.
I'd still like to know what is going to replace libkvm when it goes
away, as Hiten predicts. Would it be libkinfo?
