Heh...  This gives me an idea...  How about FreeBSD "skins."  The 
Beastie as the default (of course), and dis_ey-type themes for 
the "weak in the faith".  If FreeBSD's attempt is not to be 
offensive to anyone, anywhere, anytime, then perhaps it just 
needs to jump into a different skin for everybody (corporate or 
otherwise) it serves...  Perhaps a questionare to be filled out 
in the beginnings of sysinstall would let the system know what is 
to be considered "appropriate."

(hey...  anythings possible)  :)
