That would indeed be possible, but in that case, it would probably be
nice scrubbing ALL of doc/*/*.texi for each listing of an OpenBSD 5.1
bug, to see which bugs have been carried forward into 5.2 and which have
been fixed in the meantime.  I can push the one-liner for net_if.texi
now, but without instant access to an OpenBSD 5.2 machine and a good
chunk of testing time, it would be easier if you could help with that
effort of updating documentation.  (I am considering installing OpenBSD
in a VM, but that will take me a while...)
