What's more, neither of the 'ports' to other kernels increases hardware

I fundamentally disagree with the idea that all our packages must avoid
relying on certain features because some developers want to experiment
with FreeBSD (which already has a Linux emulation layer) or Hurd (a
long-running joke) and they are lacking these features.  This doesn't
serve users, it serves those developers.
