The main consequences are:

* Forcing the package clusters to frequently rebuild all of X, slowing
down all package builds and the rate at which we can do other testing
on pointyhat.

* The inevitable problems with commits to "deep" ports like this one
which will take out most of the ports tree when they fail to build,
leading to yet more delays in publication of usable package sets.

What was decided was to only update in batches when x.org makes a new
"kamikaze" release (or whatever they are calling it ;), unless there
is a really good reason to update a port otherwise.
