    Wes said: "I have to resort to 'make search'" which presumably means
    he'd prefer to just ls /usr/ports/$emacs_category; while 'make
    search' is a bearable interface (FMPOV), you can't beat a ls.

    Hey, what about materialized virtual categories? A bunch of
    symlinks, and everyone's happy. Or is that too much for CVS?
