Glad to hear from Nikolaus too, seeing that efforts are taken to keep
libfuse FreeBSD compatible out of the box ! For sure this is great !

I also hugely use fuse, so having it to work correctly (at least bug-free)
is mandatory for me.

I've also reported a few bugs which were in kernel, and have been corrected 
thanks to
the great FreeBSD community.
Fuse kernel support lacks some features, such as entry_timeout / attr_timeout 
but it then concerns kernel, not libfuse.

Thx !
