It is easier to try, but not impossible to tree.
Also, I am distributing source, not binary snapshots,
so the source code is available for people to look at as well.

Actually kan did get feedback from users when he posted
his last snapshot, and I did get feedback from users now.
Not everything has to be in the tree for people to try and provide
feedback.

There are other projects, such as KAME ( http://www.kame.net )
and TrustedBSD ( http://www.trustedbsd.org )
who contribute things periodically to FreeBSD, but do
work outside the FreeBSD tree, so it's not like this has not been done
before.

So, like I said before, this stuff will get into the tree, just not
now.

I hope I get more feedback from users who actually try this
stuff, rather than non-useful feedback from people who basically
will not try this stuff unless it is in the tree.
