Yeah, brainstorming. Maybe 3 stages of "ports" 1) a nothing downloaded
version that does cvsup (of the port) for the first time when it
needs be installed (minimalist), 2) a description version which keeps

needed, and 3) full version, which could come in handy if cvs server is
unavailable but source location is...
