Brilliant and very useful for FreeBSD, IMHO

You are correct, at least from the last time I checked.

I once thought of writing a GUI front end to portupgrade. Then I 
realized that that's part of the goal of the libh project. So why 
bother when libh would be out by the time I finished a stable 1.0? A 
nicer front end to cvsup would be a more useful project, particularly 
if it had a supfile configuration dialog of sorts.

It's slow and dawdling, but I think libh will finally arrive if we're 
patient. I would help work on it, but I need a dedicated -unstable 
machine that I can afford to muck up.
