The problem is that people that would otherwise be working on something
useful would have their time taken up with this.  If there's no value to it,
why should we spend energy on it?  FreeBSD is a dead-end path anyway.

There is a lot of misconception out there.  That *USED* to be the case, but
has not been for some time.

I'm again not sure what it buys us.  If Linux has problems with high loads,
why not work to fix it instead of using FreeBSD?  Really, FreeBSD is a
