I'm happy with that, since only ports committers can do something to
fix this anyway. OTOH, the same rationale that are valid for a
broken INDEX apply to PKGORIGIN and PKGVERSION: Port users might want
to know that the will run into trouble when they are trying to
update the port, and CCing ports-developers seems overambitious.

Any thoughts?
