<sigh>, I'm preparing for a major week coming up and won't be able to
give it serious attention till next weekend. I may take a break to try
fbsd-current but I won't be able to do anything with the information,
anytime soon.

I'm happy to give dfly root access, via a second interface, if you or
anyone else qualified wants to try some code. (the box does compile fast
;-D) Of course, due to a bios flash issue, hands are required to reboot,
but I'm available for that... <sigh>

Just occurs to me. I've never heard of modules in BSD. Do they exist?
Is the vr0 driver something that can be compiled, added and removed
without rebooting?
