Ah...you  do  know that  you  can  use  config  to write  out  the
modifications you made, saving them for your next boot?

It's  exactly this  sort of  potential confusion  that I'd  hope a
/bsd.conf might be able to help.

Amen. After spending so much time on other operating systems where
nothing goes  right the  first time,  or the  second time,  or the
third time, or...it's  such a relief to have things  just work the
way they're supposed to.
