That is totally and completely "cool".

I cannot say anything to that, let alone good. patchwork is
a mess, work of honourable people is laughed about, if i look what
happens to the bmake port. I mean, he has invented veriexec and
other really impressive things, and maintains that over decades.
And it works millions of times a day, or likely even more often.
If a port is not desired, at all or by one person, then it should
be said so.

 |- Do the right thing over doing the written thing

Very nice, very nice.
And even better: a nice weekend
