I appologize since I notice you did send a message with good technical
content later.  However, the message you sent seemed to consist of very
little more than (paraphrasing) "everything else is a kluge, FreeBSD's is
perfect, we should do it the FreeBSD way."  I jumped the gun, trying to
forstall another longwinded argument involving personal opinions and
disinformation being put forth as TRUTH such as the recent argument over
the merits of VM page reservation.
