I'm not speaking for anyone else, and this thread should be taken
as challenging (as in "here are some problems I see, please solve
them"), not opposed ("here are the reasons why this shouldn't happen,
go away"). For the record, I'm reasonably persuaded by what I've seen
here, at least to the point where I expect any further problems that
might appear just need to be solved.

I presume stuff's changed in the last year and a bit though; eg GING
doesn't seem to be mentioned.

These aren't meant to be things you /need/, they're ways of making
kfreebsd really excellent. I'd much rather see new ports aiming to do
things better than existing ones, rather than just trying to match them.
