Just curious, what is the reason behind having different package names for
the port versus the package. It seems confusing to me. Also, since the port
just installs a binary, couldn't it just install the package? It would
cause less confusion, don't you think?
BTW, I'm extremely happy to have diablo out, and especially that the amd64
platform i supported already. Thanks a lot, guys!
