Hey maybe now we'll actually get 6.x support. I've had luck running hostd and the vmmemctl module from the 5.x tools on 6.x without any instability, but we're still missing vmxnet. It'd also be nice to be able to install it from the ports tree without having to manually fetch the distribution file.
