No, I'm not passing judgement, other than saying that
the fact we can't get RichACLs into the Linux kernel
due to one intransigent developer is a f%&king disgrace :-(.

I'm happy for you to keep riding us hard on FreeBSD/Illumos
breakage (although less on the Illumos - now Oracle killed
Solaris the pale, hungry children are doomed to die a slow,
ignominious death :-).

But without auto-regression tests on FreeBSD triggered on
every code submission, we are going to get occasional
compile breakage, and I don't see a way around that.
