It's up to the maintainer to do this work, and handle the consequences.
I've done it for my ports. Those who don't wish to do this work can
simply add the specific version.
There are of course things that need to be consistent, but forcing
consistency where it's not necessary is not only not helpful, but can
cause more problems then it solves.
