I agree wholeheartedly Jordan.  My self-interest in the problem has at
least motivated me enough to go reading the applicable source but I've
not had time lately to work on actual patches.  I've got a lot of irons
in the fire at the moment, especially with students being back around
(I'm a sysadmin at Vanderbilt University) but when things quiet down I
do intend to work on this.  At the moment I sit daily in front of an SGI
Indigo2 running IRIX because it's better than Linux and integrates quite
well with our environment.  I really want a FreeBSD workstation on my
desk, so I'll likely end up writing the patches just so I can get that
FreeBSD workstation integrated.  But, no promises on a timeframe so if
someone else wants to get started now, then by all means charge right
ahead with it.
