		Understand your point of view.  Perhaps you can
		set up a majordomo list to discuss porting issue,
		goals, and the rest of it.

		I know what I'd like to see happen; my goals 
		may not jibe with others' but probably do intersect.
		Let's take this off-line and give the FBSD ports
		list and the debian lists a break.   See how far 
		this goes.

		Please sign me up for any interim list.
