I strongly agree with this!

If above requirements are met, some more arguments for the CAM
o easier sharing drivers between FreeBSD and NetBSD
o same APIs in FreeBSD/NetBSD
o convergence of code between FreeBSD/NetBSD
FreeBSD/NetBSD shouldn't be trying to be just different. Instead we
try to work hand in hand, as much as possible.
And to some other mails concerning this topic:
Please don't bring up any arguments about who opposed the integration
of CAM when and why. This won't help. Things happened in the past the
way they happened. I found a nice quote on a web site which explains
best what we should do, IMHO:
Solve problems rather than assign blame.
