If other people were interested in creating such a desktop environement, 
I would be happy to team with them. :)

Let's just imagine Wayland on FreeBSD + Enlightenment to
become a FreeBSD-native (!) desktop environment with GUI
integreation for OS configuration and control...

Yes, I know, this can (partially) be done with Xfce, Gnome,
KDE, Lxde, but more or less, that is fighting Linuxisms
and still being stuck with stuff that has been abandoned
in Linux world many years ago (think about HAL and DBus).
The degree of incompatibility could be increasing if the
modern development of desktop environments will concentrate
on Linux as the target, and on FreeBSD, you can only get
3/4 of what's technically possible.
