If the kfreebsd port wants to have a chance to succeed it should be trimmed down
to sensible use cases, e.g.
- file server, where people want to run ZFS
- firewall system, where people want to run pf

For these narrowed down set there would even be a chance to have tested/working 
sysv init scripts.

kfreebsd and freebsd are simply lacking too many features (starting with
graphics drivers el al) to ever be a viable base for a desktop system.
