Code will either be maintained well, or it will not. I've seen plenty of
stuff in src break, and the src build is often broken by under-tested
changes (even in -stable branches).

As I said in my original post, your attitude is anachronistic, and needs
to change. It's not ok for people to make random sweeping src changes,
even in -current, that break things in ports.
