My feelings here are pretty much the same -- I'm skeptical about the continued 
ability to maintain PicoBSD outside CVS in a long-term way, given tight 
integration with the source tree.  People can and do maintain there own 
versions of FreeBSD releases and wrappers (FreeSBIE is presumably the most 
successful example), but it's a lot of work, and if there's trouble finding 
enough hands for the current PicoBSD, it doesn't seem likely it will get more 
hands somewhere else.
