  Perl in perl of the base system; I didn't list everything.  :-)  See
CVSROOT/modules in the Darwin repository for a complete list.

  X is a "port", though we haven't really defined what than means in the
context of Darwin yet.  It will probably be bundled with the next
standalone release of Darwin, so that people can have a UI.  It will
probably never be part of Mac OS X, though.

  Cool!  I think that's pretty close to what I'm looking for.
