Ideally, sbase should achieve portability through a lack of
system-dependent code. I think it might soon be important to
create a ubase for ugly, unportable stuff. ifconfig, mount
insmod, could live there. Perhaps that would be a better
home for df? Everything else on the TODO looks like it should
be completely portable.

In that situation, we may have to begin searching for lambs to
sacrifice. If ubase becomes a reality, that will be the time
to think about these kinds of problems.
