For some unexcused reason there is the trend in Linux to represent
everything as kind of a wired half finished pseudo file system. /proc pipe
devicefs sysctl and so on... The list is really long. Even shared memmory is
mapped to  ehrm.... a filesystem. This is "expected" to be mounted at /dev/shm 
by the system. You can't expect FreeBSD to follow this path...
