Note that I am expecting that "silence" means the project is
NOT worth doing.  I can not commit these changes without help
from some ports-collection experts, and I do not want to risk
spending a few weeks of work on this only to find out that no
one will be willing to commit the changes.  So, I do not plan
to continue working on this unless I have some indication that
people really think it is worth doing.
