Glad to see that the Raspberry Pi support is coming along, I'll have to try it out.

Yep, been holding out on getting one until BSD support. I find NetBSD infinitely preferable to Linux when I want to try creating something stable. Both the APIs and ABI of *BSD tend to remain stable across upgrades, something I consider essential.

Yeah I know what you mean, it's too bad though that most packages are built on 3rd party libs that love breaking the hell out of some API/ABIs, I mean it shouldn't break going from v1.2.3.4 to v1.2.3.5 but they do it anyway!
