Well ... one thing we can't underestimate is that SUN would actually like a
port (noticed all the good PR for them Dtrace for FreeBSD has brought?) and is
willing to cooperate: not coding but at least saying what to do, explaining the
code, etc. Reiser doesn't care and SGI is clearly busy with other problems and
hasn't really cared at all either.
