There are associations--in the FreeBSD world. NetBSD already
correctly uses the word ports for the different architectures,
just as I said before. If this is to be a total BSD effort,
we have to start out on the right foot. Using a more accurate
name, rather than ignoring BSDs other than FreeBSD, sounds like
a win to me. My O of course.
