Especially in university environments, nis is still really used a lot.
At least at the place I work, all our student and employee user
databases handled for unix systems are maintained in nis. True, ldap is
superiour in many ways, but unless there is a compelling reason for
demoting it, I'd rather have it in main.

No ipsec support in main at all? Also mandatory for ipv6 AFAIUI.

doesn't screen(1) handle this sufficiently?
