Well, you can still release the source without any gaurantee that it'll
compile on *any* platform, even though you know it'll do so on Linux.
(Enter beauty of the GPL - no warranty.)  Once a *BSD developer has the
source, it'd be what - a day or two (?) before the port is ready.  Open
source leads to faster development, and I think it'd benefit the project.
The community will gladly work towards improving the project, if it's a
viable one.  My 2 cents. :)
