You can't possibly seriously believe that the project will adopt this
model without first seeing proof that it works and has significant
advantages (and no significant disadvantages) over the existing model.
This (reengineering the ports tree) has been tried before, BTW. It
didn't fly, and the project (openpackages.org) is now dead.
