+1 (RAM is neither free nor abundant.)
Increasing the default buffers, stack or heap use, should be carefully
considered.  There was a discussion about providing guidance/examples for
loader.conf and sysctl.conf for various anticipated uses: firewall,
workstation, servers, routers whether single/dual/multi core; perhaps this
is where calls for values other than those necessary to get a basic general
purpose machine working, should be?

We manage servers providing all of: samba, squid, dovecot, sendmail, ldap,
heimdal, apache on low-energy boxes with 1G RAM, and over 8 years FreeBSD
has proven that it has "the power to serve".
