certainly. I was thinking on the upcoming GNU/FreeBSD system [1], but this may
be targeted for any platform.

well, i think inetutils is a good place for an NFSd, but i don't realy care
much on where to put it. the real point is that it gets maintained, recieves
feedback, etc. I'm willing to help, but i'm not able to maintain a GNU
package all on my own.

on the other hand, putting it in inetutils would give good "advertising"
so that current inetutils users would easily know there's an nfsd now.
