This is really remarkable and very impressive work, and I'm really pleased 
that someone has taken the time to make this happen.  Thanks greatly!

BTW, you might consider making this available as an independent software 
package from FreeBSD (perhaps just as a downloadable source tarball), as I'm 
sure it would be of interest to developers on other systems.  I have an 
undergraduate student doing a project that I definitely plan to point at this!
