I happened to be in Dallas late last year and arranged a site visit and 
meeting with our SoftLayer contacts. We discussed this precise issue, 
and they had a suggestion for loading a custom ISO. We haven't yet 
explored the issue because so far we only use physical machines for 
FreeBSD, but here are some links they gave me:

I'm looking forward to trying it out when we get to it.

Overall, we have had excellent service from SoftLayer - both technical 
and account-related.
