No, they're "legacy", i.e. do not support DeadRat's aims of creating an
inscrutable proprietary platform where one is more or less compelled to buy a
support contract to be able to use it. Never mind that trying to get their
alleged "support" to actually fix anything is like pissing into the wind. Their
Perl packages are particularly awful and not fit for purpose.

Debian adopting systemd was what finally pushed me over the edge into the BSD
camp. The rot had been setting in for years before that, though.
