It's no doubt a project beyond my present abilities, especially given
the amount of spare time I would have to devote to such a project
(i.e. zero time, without additional funding to explicitly support it).

However many of the techniques they implement now might be suitable for
future implementation in the existing tools used by *BSD, and at least
some of them might even fit in quite nicely.
