There's an excuse, erm... reason for that: disks are huge and cheap today. :-)

I completely disagree with this logic and see that as no excuse. It is still a limited resource (and probably always will be; as drive capacities increase, so will file size), I actually paid for it, and I always attempt to conserve such resources. I'm no fan of waste, especially when it comes to shared computer resources.

That said, I do realize that in the case of PC-BSD, they did it for what IMO was an acceptable reason, so it's... well, acceptable. Still goes against my preferences though.
