Ah, but after we are done with BSDs, we'll need to standardize the rest
of Unix world. Would you love to eventually see administrative
tools standardized? Aren't we all sick of subtle differences in common
utilities for? People develop a habit to one system's utilities,
and then need to learn a new habit on a different system with the same
utilities but different interface. It's very frustrating and annoying,
as we all know. 'netstat -t' on one BSD or Linux does something unrelated
on another. Arg!
