Well, this is pretty unsubstantiated...it doesn't automatically follow
that because they forked from FreeBSD 4 they will retain all the
characteristics of FreeBSD 4.

After all, they're mostly focusing on reimplementing the changes made
in FreeBSD 6 along different (and sometimes the same) lines.  Perhaps
they'll end up with something better, but that remains to be seen.
