           Summary: graphics/pecl-imagick and -im7 why?

Is there a strong reason why there are 2 ports instead of jsut one with a knob
to select the desired ImageMagick version (or better it just uses the default
ImageMagick port)?

Following situation:

I need to install ImageMagick-7 AND www/nextcloud on the same host. The
nextcloud port depends on graphics/pecl-imagick which depends on ImageMagick-6

This is kind of a chicken-egg problem.

Can't we have only graphics/pecl-imagick that just uses the default ImageMagick
version, like most other ports using ImageMagick do?
