Lets not go there.  Other people feel the exact opposite
and we want FreeBSD to be broadly usable, so we will have
to spend time and effort to both sides.

You know, I also wish we could
	sysctl kern.rfc748=1
and then se our users smile happy smiles.

But it ain't so in my universe, and since I block all exouniverse
email as spam, you must be in the same one too.

Remember all those western movies where a sign were posted over the
piano player:

	Don't shoot the pianist,
	-- he's doing the best he can.

Well, if you look carefully, you'll see a similar sign hung over
the FreeBSD committers.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
