Just use FreeBSD without pfSense stuff -- it is easier ;)) Modulo the
absence of the network-based installation for FreeBSD via PXE [1] out
of the box (well, it is doable, but I'd prefer to have an easier way
and Linuxen have that), so large-scale stuff is a bit tough.  Was
discussed several times in FBSD lists, big players have their own
homegrown stuff from the early days of the universe, others are either
not doing that or relying on the existing recipes.  And there are not
sufficient others of the big $SCALE :(

Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be
a violent psychopath who knows where you live.
