:I think that you forgot to attach the patches that demonstrate all of
:this.

:Also, I'm really starting to resent you using the FreeBSD mailing lists as
:an advocacy channel for DragonFly.  I fail to see how FreeBSD 4.x and
:DFBSD relate to FreeBSD 5-current, which is the overall topic of this
:mailing list at the moment.

    That's too bad, Scott.  You are just going to have to live with it.

    From my point of view anything related to BSD is fair and reasonable
    game, and regardless of anything else this mailing list is discussing
    topics and things that are near and dear to my heart and I have a perfect
    right to comment on them.  I've contributed a considerable amount of
    time and effort to FreeBSD and I have a right to be on this list.

    From my point of view, it's all under the same open-source umbrella
    anyway.  The moment you start thinking of a project in isolation is
    the moment you start to disconnect from your responsibility to the
    project and to all the users and developers who depend on the project.

    I still run a lot of FreeBSD boxes and know people who run a lot of 
    FreeBSD boxes and, frankly, that gives me just as much right to comment
    on the future directions of FreeBSD as you or anyone else.

    So you are just going to have to live with it.  Maybe instead of fuming
    over DFly you should consider the work from a more technical standpoint.
