That's good to hear.

I plan to commit the writeup, the two scripts, and the safety-check
in /usr/src/Makefile.inc1 on Wednesday, March 3rd.
I do not know if anyone is looking to commit the patch to the ezm3
port. The writeup now includes explicit instructions on how to
download and install the pkg-files for ezm3 and cvsup-without-gui,
so I expect that I do not need to wait until the port is patched.
I plan to commit the big change to the _types.h file on March 10th.
At the same time, I'll probably also commit a line or two to UPDATING,
and a change to increment __FreeBSD_version.
