These and other companies contribute significantly to the FreeBSD Project -- 
witness, for example, NFS locking support, new NFS RPC code, and the MPSAFE 
VFS, both contributed by Isilon in the last ten years.  Not gratuitously 
renaming files and directories is not a high price to pay for those 
contributions :-).  And, remember that a moderate number of our developers 
work for companies that use FreeBSD in products, so we're not just helping 
disconnected end-users: they are members of the community.
