I completely agree with you here. My question is, what should I do with 
pflogd? I don't see much point in creating user pflogd now, patching pflogd 
to use it and revert everything back for 6-current. So will it be much of a 
problem to add _pflogd now eventhough the rest of the daemons is not yet
