I mistyped that, should have been what the reasons are for running 
FreeBSD as Dom0, as opposed to running it as a DomU on a NetBSD machine. 
I didn't realise you were ruling out using the Intel/AMD virtualisation 
extensions. If you discount that approach, I think you're talking a 
significant wait before FreeBSD catches up.
