I've not really heard anything about it yet. You may want to ask around 
the FreeBSD mailing lists to see if somebody already has started on it, 
or plans on adding it in the future :) It would probably be nice to have 
it sooner rather than later, and if you ask right away, maybe we can get 
it done soon.
