I hope people are not being as careless as you imply.  Being paid to
write code as an employee means relinguishing copyright in the code to
one's employer.  If people are actually doing this for FreeBSD, then
some of the code in FreeBSD is owned by their employers, which can
become a legal nightmare and stop the project dead in its tracks
overnight.  Aren't there any _lawyers_ working on this project?
