That seems like an awfull lot of upgrading for one patch (upgrading to RELENG_4).  My 
system is extremely stable and I'd hate to rock the boat for this tiny patch.  Seems 
like there is a better chance of something `breaking' during a full system upgrade 
rather then applying the patch and doing the buildworld.  I've only got about two 
years of FreeBSD experience so I may be missing something.  I certainly welcome input 
from more experienced admins.
