OpenBSD appears to be more heavily audited though. Maybe it's just
appearance. You may have seen in the Debian Weekly News that I'm working
on a rough audit project and in such I would like to say that security
must include a heavy code audit.

The value of an OpenBSD port extends beyond the potential security
benefits. Making packages portable across kernels is very valuable. I
would like to be able to go into any OS and run a Debian system.

I'm sure you've heard these arguments and so I won't ask you to drudge on
with the port, but I do hope that the port continues. Thanks for the work
you've put in on this.
