To be even more precise, they need a guarantee that automatic updates
will not break anything so that it could be put to cron like "apt-cron".
This goal could be satisfied by another means, I hope: FreeBSD developers
unlikely to have enough time/efforts to keep it for *all* -RELEASE branches,
but for only chosen ones (e.g. extended security support) - may be.
