I realise it's a bit on the tangent of the group, but from whence can one
retrieve 4.4BSD-lite sources?

Will a full 4.4BSD ever become available on the network?

They are not yet available on the net -- the lawsuit was *just*
settled, and, believe it or not, source code was changing up to
the last minute.  I will be moving forward to create the release
as soon as possible.

Almost certainly not.
