Yep, I chatted with Allan about this when I first got started. UCL is 
definitely the way to go, and I will make that a priority. Though the 
current UCL configuration for bhyve is in a state of flux. According to 
him, the form is supposed to change quite a bit once bhyve gets support 
for some new features (brain fart on which features Peter and Neel 
mentioned to Allan). Though, conforming to his form is of course the 
right way to proceed. Allan, feel free to chip in and correct me if I am 
mistaken :)

Agree with you 100% on config file re-use wherever possible.  Specially 
comes in handy when people want to help and can re-use those files 
instead of having to re-define them.
