I would like to specify a site to try first, and then fall back to the list
that's already there.
If I didn't want to use a specific site (heanet.sf.net does come to mind :-),
I'd be more likely to delete it from the list or set the RANDOMIZE... option.
I'm not sure I would use a "ignore all master sites" option, although I
don't object to the idea, it just seems to me that I'd Cntl-C if I decided not
to fetch something.
I tend to update a set of ports on a build machine, and either rsync the
distfiles or the packages to other machines....
