VMWare Tools for FreeBSD

 I use the vmware tools for freebsd from the free vmware server product for my esx-hoster freebsd servers.  The good people at vmware are apparently not interested in adding "official" freebsd support to esx.

Is there any future development work being undertaken in order to port
vmware-tools to FreeBSD.

As our organisation using VMWare ESX Server and a lot of our servers are
being virtualised to save hardware costs, this would let our FreeBSD servers
follow as well.


It does work find under Linux so I am 50% confident that it would port to
FreeBSD if the work was done. Is it a licensing issue or another reason? Not
being a developer myself was just wondering if this has been tackled and if
it is being incorporated somewhere in the future?
