It is better that this is happening now, after the SVN import, therefore
the change cost may not be so great as it may have been with CVS.
One of the long-standing problems with FreeBSD is that we have been too
conservative in what we've allowed into the code base. There are sound
and compelling reasons why we have such rules, however, it's worth
remembering that competition has been able to get a foothold in various
key areas that could have been expanded into.
The fact is, at the end of the day, it's about how things get used, so
perhaps an experiment in user-driven development isn't so bad (for some
value of "user" other than large corporate sponsor giving code away 6-12
months after something happened).
