Umm Legacy? Legacy is closed, dead, ka-put. Legacy not working had
little to do with the infrastructure. It had mostly to do with no one
wanting to do the hard work of security back-porting. Keeping up with
the alerts, fixing the pkgs and testing them is difficult, laborious and
not-terribly-fun work. That's what made legacy not work.

So we should not speak of legacy unless someone has a big pile of money
or a big pile of committed, involved and talented folks who will never
leave us. :)

since we have neither of those...
