Florent Thoumie's bringing up a possibility and considering to go by
the general consensus is healthy though, and I completely appreciate

Policies in such projects are generally not against anyone but for everyone.
It's nice of the committer that they in a way have sought your
opinion. I'm sure you don't want FreeBSD to look like a haywire Linux
distro anytime soon. I hope FreeBSD doesn't become a soup.
P.S. I am not against the Linux culture, in fact I am happy that they
are happy with it. I merely referred to FreeBSD's distinction of being
an excellent advanced operating system project from every aspect.

Anything that can affect habits of a larger group of BSDists is at
least worth a second thought.
Long options are not just about me but a lot more out there who may
not even know of the discussion, so I'd try to be more considerate.
