I tried to point at the potential size savings, but I guess that simply
doesn't count in your book.  I guess I should have also waited another year
or so until FreeBSD has finished its port to the Alpha and perhaps another
platform to bother talking about this.  It's not as if I'm trying to toot
my horn here.  A user asked a question about the differences in the
implementations and I attempted to answer it.  Sorry to have wasted so much
of your time.
