Yeah, I was aware of it :), I've listed it on the draft I expect
to convert to a generic porting guide , which I proposed on
debian-bsd and debian-hurd .

Oh! I had considered proposing to maybe host libbsd, libkqueue, the
upcoming libmd, the aforementioned porting guide, and probably other
similar portable and porting projects in something like a
porting.freedesktop.org or similar, but it had not really crossed my
mind to actually propose to merge it into libbsd itself, as I guess
I didn't even think you'd be amenable to that.
Now when I considered it, I had mixed feelings about that, but yes, I
think it seems to actually make sense to merge it.
BTW, the other day I rechecked the libkqueue web site, and found that
the link from the trac front-page does not work.
