 1. SCTP support  
   
 1. Change keyboard drivers to emit USB scancodes in event mode so for example ADB or Sun keyboards can coexist with things like USB keypads on the same mux and we don't need a separate InputDevice section in xorg.conf for each. This should be relatively easy.  1.

 1. Port FreeBSD's DAHDI implementation to NetBSD, so that Asterisk on NetBSD will have hardware support.  FreeBSD's DAHDI implementation is SMP, so this isn't a simple port.  Also, just about every FreeBSD kernel API related to device drivers and modules are different from the NetBSD equivalent meaning that one needs to basically know both kernels.  1.
