Dear Chromium port maintainer(s)

I was wondering what the current status was with regards to sandboxing
renderer processes. In particular, now that Capsicum comes as standard in
FreeBSD, I'm interested in running Chromium with Capsicum enabled. Robert
Watson (my supervisor, and whose office is opposite mine) did an initial
version a few years ago ( but
these patches were not upstreamed.

Are there any patches around for the latest port/plans for adding Capsicum

If not, then I would be very much interested in helping in this regard.
