:OTOH, bending backwards to support FreeBSD ports structure is going a bit
:against logic in my opinion.
:Besides, we are tripping a lot more issues recently than just these simple
:matters.  We _do_ need to move to our own system slowly by now.
:Yes, if we keep going under the FreeBSD banner with ports we build on a ton
:more ports, but OTOH, fixes for DF will almost never truly tested if we rip
:the FreeBSD name out and get stuff filtered upstream.

    Yes, I agree, but I don't want to just break ports that were working
    before for no good reason.  Since any new code should use the long-form
    of the option instead of the short form, I think we can safely make
    -b be compatible with the old patch's -b.
