 * unionfs -- there are some bugs with union I would like to see fixed. Imagine running a live CD by having a root read-only, and then simply mounting a tmpfs writable upon that.  * unionfs -- there are some bugs with union I would like to see fixed.

 * raidfs -- once unionfs is fixed, it could be possible to integrate a mirror, perhaps some redundancy checks with unionfs to have a flexible raid on vnode basis, not depending on the underlying filesystem or device.  * raidfs -- once unionfs is fixed, it could be possible to integrate a mirror, perhaps some redundancy checks with unionfs to have a flexible raid on vnode basis, not depending on the underlying filesystem or device.
 * userwiki -- I know this is a controversary topic... So no matter how and where, but having a place where users can contribute content in an ordered way (i.e., not on a mailing list), would be nice. See below for advocacy.  * userwiki -- I know this is a controversary topic...

   * Security BSD derivate -- There was this teenie book, "Little Brother" from Cory Doctorow. There, they had an operating system that was actually only on a CD, and encrypted the whole hard disk, and everything ran on the hard disk. Imagine you had the same for NetBSD... A base system (Jibbed would be sufficient), which has some small wrapper scripts trying to decrypt a hard disk, and if it succeeds, mounts this as its /usr/pkg or so. You could have a completely virgin OS (the CD, which is read-only), and a completely encrypted hard disk, which carries everything variable. Updates of the base system would be just burning a new CD... I know there are close projects already done in Linux, but they all assume an USB flash drive.
