Hi Garance
cc current,

Thanks for your well explained posting.  I won't distract from new thread
         "Unfortunate dynamic linking for everything"
except to note:

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that.  I meant:
- Current@ readers (that decide things), may have different 
  skill levels & preference of balance between risk & function, compared 
  with other user groups EG perhaps on hackers@ &/or isp@ etc.
- Some admins don't read @freebsd.org lists, to comment on the 
  fully dynamic decision, but will later install default systems 
  `out of the box', with later subsequent remote upgrades.
- Any extra later danger / limitation to them could affect FreeBSD reputation.
