"Besides, just think of it." As the OpenBSD team ***did*** the work
(for others, DF including) why not to jump to the latest version? Is
not justified such thinking?

My God, I only asked why... You are the second person paying tribute to
Mr Jan Lentfer publicly for His works taking advantage of my e-mail. Did
I say anything belittling His efforts and the results?

I thought it was understandable to all that His works are highly


P.S. Why everybody answers to my account and to the mailing list? I
subscribed to the mailing list with provision not to be clobbered with
double e-mails.
