    Guys, we are not throwing more languages into the base system.  The
    whole point of having a packaging system is so we DON'T have to ship
    extra stuff in base.   I would have thought that our experiences with
    FreeBSD... with perl and cvsup (before the binary-only package was made
    available), would have made it glaringly obvious how bad an idea it is.
