Nice stuff and close to what I do (I just share a development sys tree over NFS
now).  One thing I do in regards to kernels is this, /boot/kernel/kernel is a
clean kernel, i.e. from a clean current source, not any of my development
trees.  Kernels in development trees use stuff like this:

makeoptions     KERNEL=smpng

in their kernel config files so I have /boot/smpng/kernel, /boot/test/kernel,
/boot/preempt/kernel, etc. for my development tree kernels.  This avoids
needing to keep a kernel.good around, as /boot/kernel/kernel is always ok.
