I have a dream.

A dream of unification.

Having one BSD. Merging the three projects and, why not, keeping
incompatible stuff as options that would be either one or another.

But when you tell yourself that it cannot be done, you don't even
try it.

It would require people to not only do it for the sake of their projects,
but for the whole BSD people. Even those who really piss you off in
other projects.

Because someday, those projects will live on without us. We'll pass on
like everyone.

Am I alone thinking this ?
