At the very least it would be good to not add lines for services which
already exist so the user doesn't end up with a new copy of the lines
every time they do a portupgrade. That way you avoid situations like
the way the perl ports spam make.conf with 11 lines of crap every time
perl gets upgraded on a 5.x system.
Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
