Correct.  I could manually refresh the slave ports now, but they 
would fall out of sync the next time the master port information was 
updated.  The next step will be automatically updating the slave 
ports based upon the master ports.  Hopefully I can do that sometime 
in the next week or so.

Yes.  A work in progress  It also gives me a chance to get the ports 
maintainers involved in checking the results.  Peer review is always
