Reading all your extremely well documented arguments on this subject
is hilarious. Have you considered that there are techincal and design
issues with devfs that people are complaining over?

I don't know how much actually changed in devfs since Ted wrote an
excellent summary about what was wrong with it about a year ago, but I
haven't seen anything from the devfs author claiming that he actually
addressed those issues.
