For me at least, here are the problems with this approach for
-Bleeding edge FreeBSD HEAD
-Remastering a Windows ISO
-An AutoUnattend.xml automatic installation file
-Windows VirtIO network driver
-DVD-ROM remastering utilities (p7zip and sysutils/cdrtools-devel)
-RDP Remote Desktop Protocol client (net/freerdp)
plus all the gothchas involved in the whole procedure.
For now, it is a lot to ask just for using usb (in my case).
FreeBSD since 2.2.8 [not Pro-Audio.... YET!!]
