Cc'ing port maintainer would be a good idea; I feel bad about Alexander
doing my job, but I have ports in 14 categories and there's absolutely
no way I can read all associated lists; I guess I'll have to invent
some new mail filters, esp. for skype (I don't think I was ever CC'ed
on mails about it since I maintain the port).

  "Intellectual Property" is   nowhere near as valuable   as "Intellect"
