Certain other BSDs did put that script (or rather, a sanitised variant
of it) in the base installation, available for disabling at install
time, but seeing that the website has been down for ages some time ago,
and technical problems are solved after long delays if at all, it was
removed again… the BSDstats project seems to focus exclusively on FreeBSD

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.	-- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
