A few pointers...  First, this is an international list, and many of the top 
developers do not speak English as a first language.  Hackor speak is right 
out.  Actually taking the time to clearly write a message helps.  Second, 
this is based on FreeBSD 4.11.  If FreeBSD 4.11 does not support it, it is 
not likely to be added.  Now we are transitioning to FreeBSD 6.0, so if it 
is supported in 6.0 it will be in the new version.  If it is not, it may be 
a while before someone would add it.  And there has to be a real perceived 
need, not just someone who thinks it would "be cool."
