Hi Robert:

Thanks for creating the initial port.

I have some patches for the FreeBSD kevent code to add "touch" filter  
hooks, EVFILT_USER, NOTE_TRIGGER, and EV_DISPATCH that I'll send your  
way to review.   I have looked at EV_RECEIPT briefly and I am not sure  
how useful or necessary it is for this port.   Maybe someone could  
comment on that.

Thanks in advance,
