This is an *extremely* difficult question to answer, and these discussions
come up all too often. The short answer is; shut up and code! -- Meaning;
since FreeBSD exists, and grows because of those whom are willing to
produce code to accomplish it. Those who put their code, where their
mouth is, will be the deciding vote. :)
I'm not always loving it. But it is, what it is, and it's hard to argue
with it. No? :)
