I think doscmd works very well, I've been playing with it a couple of
days, and its great.
The pity is that it doesn't have support for int13, which is used by
most of the old MS_DOS games (like Prince of Persia, my favourite).
If it's going to be well mantained, I would prefer to see it on the ports
collection, but on the other hand I wouldn't like to see
this program dissapear from FreeBSD at all.
I've never tested it with flash utilities and such (Im afraid of upgrading
my flash :), but I think it is a useful thing to have, either on the base
system or in the ports.
