Plus upstream sources generally get slammed by multiple downstream
projects, so if we can contribute back fixes or pull in upstream fixes
as cherrypicks through the vendor tree, then that would reduce our
diff and make sure that upstream projects benefit from our changes.

The only time we should really be modifying and not giving back is
when we have FreeBSD-specific modifications that don't make sense in
upstream projects. Those should be rare occurrences though...
