ULE scheduler not yet default?

I don't get it. Why isn't the ULE scheduler the default? They eulagise it's performance then go with the '4BSD' scheduler for 7.0 - that's almost an indigtment against the robustness and/or stability of the ULE scheduler.

I'm sure the ULE scheduler is good enough, but I really don't get why they have put it off as the default until 7.1 - a strange, strange decision. If you want an older, stabler FreeBSD (i.e. the tried, tested 6.x) then why would you choose 7.0, ergo it's the surely ideal release for unleashing the ULE scheduler on the wider public.
