I think we can agree on that!  I also think there is some confusion
over whether adding ABI changes to an existing symbol version would
force us to rebuild ports.  It doesn't.  Once symbol versioning is
released in 7.0, we can create a new version (FBSD_1.1, or add to
the existing FBSD_1.1 depending on how the FTS stuff goes) and add
all the (non-overlapping) ABI changes we want to it _without_ having
to rebuild ports.  This is a tremendous advantage over -current as
it is today.
