 I looked at the another exiting CMF port www/cmfforum, and also at other
 python ports eg. databases/PyGreSQL which use mixed cased
 name convention. Zope/CMF have their own mixed cased naming
 convention, and I thought it was better to follow than create
 a new one as it would be easier to look for those ports.
 Also Zope/CMF ports also have multiple words such as CMFPhotoAlbum,
 CMFExternalFile, CMFFormController etc. These would become something like
 zope-cmfformcontroller, zope-cmfexternalfile which isn't very readable.
 I'm a first time porter, so I'm not sure what's best. Should it be:
 Please advice, and I will patch my PR's with the desired FreeBSD ports
 naming convention.
