Sorry, this is just crap. I'm a rather bad guitar player, at least much worse
than I'm a programmer. Yet I enjoy playing Joe Pass at 1/4 the speed while
I could import ZFS during that time ... People just bring to FreeBSD what they
like to do, not what would be the best for you or others. If you want them
to change priorities according to YOUR needs, pay them money.
