Actually, it was imported into RELENG_6 in Dec. 2005, but this is only
relevant to those who have upgraded their systems since the change and
I'm sure many did not. While the update is easy now, a few folks were
still caught by surprise.
In any case, since it was not in effect last year, it would be very
unlikely that most FreeBSD users would have noticed it then.
