I'm very sorry to hear that. I don't have the skills to comment anything 
technically, but I just wanted to say that I'm suprised that -current is that 
stable for me these days. It's wonderful, but I think making progress in 
standard compliance and/or testing new developed stuff (eg. the new USB 
stack) is much more important than making -current a production branch.
I'm a friend of standrads and I highly appreciate your work Andrey, and I hope 
we will see your work back in the tree as soon as possible.

Diffrent people do things different, but that's why FreeBSD is what it is 
today. The accummulation of excellent work by excellent people.
