Yeah, I think that I know what I'm talking about. The question was: Should
devfs be fixed, or should xterm be fixed. I don't know how serious it is, or
exactly what the nature of the problem is (haven't followed the thread that
closely), but, from the "mile high" point of view, this defect, be it design
or just a one-line bug, needs to be fixed before it can be tagged
"non-experimental". I don't understand why people would think otherwise, to
be honest.
