There was a discussion about it over on hackers@ last November. The 
thread starts at

http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-hackers/2011-November/036742.html

TL;DR summary: some are wildly in favour of it, others are completely 
negative. I.e. the usual network response to anything :-}

Unless someone capable and willing to do the port managed to get one of 
the first production batch, the next lot won't be available for 7-8 
weeks at the earliest. My order is currently expected to be delivered 
the second week in May.
