I think you *are* forgetting it is a volunteer project, so demand is 
not a word that can really come into play.  No one here has made any 
commitment to you or any other user about what will and will not be 
in FreeBSD. If FreeBSD meets your needs, thats great! If not, perhaps 
try help fixing it yourself, or contributing funds to have someone 
fix it.  I have been using FreeBSD for some time and run a LOT of my 
business on top of it.  So when things dont work, its a drag. Deal 
with it as best you can (e.g. fix it yourself, work around it or 
choose a new OS or pay someone to fix it). In the case of quotas, 
dont use snapshots.  In the case of the NVE, a $5 realtek (rl) will 
work just fine.
