easy. i have to port alot of cpu platforms to bsd then and since i'm doing

wireless routers i will run into a problem with all the drivers i have
to rewrite for bsd and the bsd wireless stack is simply shit

its basicly a impossible task. and most of my code is gpl licensed. mmh
mixing with bsd code, not a good idea
