Great :-) Though having translators on top of a monolithic kernel
seems kind of exotic to me.

I wonder whether it is reasonable to try FUSE to implement
translators.  I've never been much into FUSE, but the Wikipedia
article says that ``FUSE is particularly useful for writing virtual
file systems'', which, AIUI, is precisely the matter of interest for
most translators.  (At least FUSE filesystems like GmailFS,
WikipediaFS, archivemount sound a lot like actual translator names.)

Hm, it didn't occur to me that such things may indeed happen :-)
Thanks for pointing out :-)

However, I'm afraid I won't devote time to writing another mail to the
NetBSD community, because I won't be able to back it with any working
