That's nice.

We'll be expecting your first release of WoodsBSD (or whatever it
will be called) sometime in September.  Humour us, would you, and
do what you want but please don't insinuate that what you want should,
as The Great New Standard, replace what is here already .  If it were
supposed to be that way, it would probably have happened by now.
Since it hasn't, please stop pushing.
