I just thought I would remind all the nay-sayers that the *BSD world has
been doing something along this line since at least 1990. While some of
the programs have changed, the functionality has remained largely the
same.

Unix is best described as an old, sturdy tree.
It is well structured, always growing, and has passed the test of time.
