    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.
