This is exactly the type of statement that is almost guaranteed to
de-motivate someone from trying to work on FreeBSD.  It has become all
too common in the past month.  I wish that we could leave these types of
emotionally charged phrases out of the discussion and concentrate on the
technical issues involved instead.

If there is any easier way to do things, then let's test the patches that
make that happen.  I hope everyone can agree that anything we could do to
simplify the build and QA cycle for this huge package would be a good idea.
