   Yah, I axed UUCP, though there were a few things that still had
   to be kept, like 'rmail'.  I might also have to bring back 'cu' but
   I'd rather somebody just enhance 'tip' with cu-like abilities instead
   (e.g.  -l line option, clocal operation for immunity from hangups, etc).
   Getting rid of uucp was a relief.  Nobody in the right mind uses uucp
   any more, or if they do it really ought to be a port instead of base
   (and this is from the guy who wrote AmigaUUCP so I have some authority
   on the matter!).
	Also, we need to axe a few more things, like KerberosIV and
	netns.  Also, it might be a good idea to nuke Perl from base,
	but that's a big step for now I think.  Curretly, we need to get
	DragonFly in a state which is almost up-to-scratch with 5.x,
	userland wise, because around the base, there are a lot of
	asumptions made on the kernel, such as some sysctl oids etc, and
	some particular functionality which doesn't exist in
