It is a broken mis-feature.  Please tell me how you managed to
make it work properly.  Do you have some sort of script that
sorts the output in order by dependency tree?  Or do you actually
go through it every time and sort it by hand?  Do you think that
it's justified that so many other users who didn't know what they
were doing shot themselves in the foot?

portupgrade is a much better tool.  How about simply replacing -c
with a message suggesting use of that instead?
