I guess that's one of the challenges to be dealt with. Having briefly
examined nbsd's pkgsrc-wip I think it is a good source of QA. I would
like to combine this with a better way of channeling changes back into
the tree. Best of both worlds - faster/wider distribution of new
changes, larger base of reviewers.

But you are right - anything that lowers the quality of the ports tree
would be an absolute no-go.
