Out of some sort of morbid curiosity, why would the FreeBSD developers
not update to the latest version? It appears to be stable and I have not
seen anything to state otherwise. There are apparently, (obviously)
differences between the latest and the version presently used in
FreeBSD and I assume the proposed one for the 9.x branch. Mathew
alluded to that. In any case, since 9.x is not due out for a while, it
would appear to me me anyways that now would be a good time to consider
making the switch.

Just my 2¢.
