Better yet, check freebsd-net's archives, as that is where networking
discussions happen...

You can also search for howl, as that's the name of the package that is
being used to provide that functionality.

That said, I worked on getting the drive behave better; I offered to work
with people to integrate the functionality in the rcNG framework, and to
work with upstream maintainers to integrate any patches back into howl's
Nobody showed any interest whatsoever in seeing this happen, so I had
to quit working on this.
