I'd like to also publicly object to the removal of the code from bmake (I responded privately at first). FreeBSD has filemon, and I suspect it has more acceptance there, but maxv stated he will propose it. Sharing the code with FreeBSD is more than worth the 200 unused-by-us lines of code, and it's already optional. No rush though. Let's wait to see what they say. I have no objections to removing the kernel module.
