Even for deps/plist changes, it is not always necessary to bump revision.
If, for example, port behavior is changed so it installs few extra files,
PORTREVISION can be left intact, as long as previous version of the port has
correct plist. On contrast, if pkg-plist was updated to include files that
were installed but didn't have plist entry before, PORTREVISION should be
bumped so users can get "fixed" package.
In general, I totally agree with Matthias on this issue: please give enough
thinking before bumping PORTREVISION.
