Personally speaking I like the kitchen sink approach for something
as simple as this. Get it done and over with, I say, so we can move
on to something else. The only thing I might try to avoid touching
would be 'contrib', but everything else is fair game.
And, yes, I also agree that DragonFly is in a unique position to be
able to do these sorts of mass changes with minimal disruption. But
even within the FreeBSD development base __P() and register keyword
removal would not present any significant disruption as long as it
were decreed by core to get around all the individual developer's
ownership and ego issues.
