Management daemon with fine grained permission, extremely useful. Would Juniper 
consider donating to FreeBSD under a BSD license portions of this code, the 
MGD, which could be  reused in FreeBSD ? A fine grained permission system on 
daemon IPC and the scaffoldings of a management configuration daemon would help 
FreeBSD. I am very grateful your company helped us with libxo.  Now you could 
help with the other end of the system.  

So Juniper, thank you for contributing, and please help the OS who makes us all
