That sounds like a good idea.  Two good ideas, actually.
1) bring it in (if someone has the time and energy), and
2) put it under a separate name, for at least a few months.
   (and I mean at *least* a few months)
DragonflyBSD is a much smaller world than FreeBSD, so forcing
all Dfly users to use it will not add all much more to the
debugging effort for ataNG.  At the same time, it would be good
to have ataNG available for those Dfly users who can use it.
