I cannot promise anything because we also tried this for 4.0 and it all
looked very promising for our small team (~5 people) during the beta
phase but quite a few serious bugreports came in with the call for
testers for 4.0.4. And progress on our side depends very much on the
spare time of a few people. So if you need a stable 4.1.0 for FreeBSD
you'd better spend some time helping us to test it.
