You're under the FreeBSD impression.
What I was proposing was a way to have the equivalent of a LINT kernel,
intended to be functional as well as compilable, and a `support most common

: in the same way the X kernels are packaged.
The thing is, the options any particular user would want in the latter three
here can be wildly different.
