My comment to all port maintainers, if my opinion as the mainstream author is
I don't recommend implementing any changes that break mainstream
compatibility. GNU/GPL allows you to do it, but it's definitely a bad idea,
as mainstream compatibility is a serious benefit to developers and
administrators having to support various platforms. In the worst case some
creative port maintainers have created their own forks of mainstream
applications and need to support those forks by themselves.
