I never minded getting my hands dirty in source code comparisons and
synching, even if the directory structure are totally different.

Just takes a bit of effort, but that's always been a sacrifice I've
willingly made.

That's one of the issues I think that kind of stifled FreeBSD, the
continuous worries about whether or not the revision control history
would still match.  Seems as if, in the end, people were working to
please the revision control system and not have the revision control
system work for them.
