I don't think that ports compatibility is a good thing, that means the
userbase will most likely be split in two, those who use our package
system and those who use FreeBSD ports. Since we are going to make out own

If we have two package systems we will spend time testing and debuging the
other one as well, and not only our own, which will lead to less work on
our package system, which again will lead to slower development of it.
