There's a difference between turning BSD into SysV and importing good ideas
from SysV. There are elements of SysV designed for reliable system
administration in a production environment, with clear boundaries between
system files and those meant to be modified by admins, that I'd like to see
in BSD. In the face of NIH attitudes like this, why bother implementing it?
