And the argument has become even more ridiculous. Please, no bikeshedding over 
this one again, _please_. I find the whole "oh my god, ports don't do stuff 
on $ancient_version_of_freebsd" whine to be totally pointless. Ports is NOT 
the base-system, ports are not and cannot be supposed to meet any 
stable-branch criteria.
