I think it's unlikely that removing Coda support from the FreeBSD base
system would improve anything -- without meaning to offend, I don't think
the Coda developers would be able to maintain the kernel code, given that
even the userland parts (venus etc.) do not compile "out of the box" on any
recent FreeBSD release (4.7, 4.8, 5.0). Otherwise it would be good: less
code for FreeBSD developers to maintain, easier for Coda developers to
update/keep in sync with other platforms.
