It is nice to see progress. One of the things I liked about desktopbsd over pcbsd at the time was doing the updates. I liked how desktopbsd did updates in that they would update every thing that needed to be updated by checking freebsd which at the time was different and still is to how pcbsd does it. I like what you are considering doing for the updates. I for one love rolling releases and like being able to install once and update as often as the software updates are made. I also like having a hardened version with all the breaches I would like to know I was more secure. I am very interested in seeing more of this and trying this out as I really miss desktopbsd.
