Glad to hear that we're more or less in agreement ...

Agreed, we need to coordinate this with the ports folks carefully, but I'm
less concerned about that because the ports freeze for 6-release won't be
for a long time. The freeze/slushie for the base is tomorrow. :)
I sent a note to re@ saying that this change was coming, so hopefully they
can cut us a little slack. But it sounds like we agree on the big picture
stuff, if we can get some patches out tonight for broader review (say on
-current and -ports), then I would feel comfortable getting the code in the
base tomorrow before the freeze, then refining it in the next couple months.
