No - you're misunderstanding me.  ALL I'm saying is when one uses a
particular __FreeBSD_version they should document the significance of
that version in the Porter's Handbook.  One should be able to look up
why that particular number was used.

I am not in the lest bit complaining that the value 7000044 isn't the
exact second the event ru is testing for occurred.
