The preferred way to deal with this (IMHO) is to instead send a followup
to the original PR with the new sharfile.  Alternatively, just mention
in the second PR's Synopsis that it obsoletes the first one (e.g.
'supercedes ports/77777').  That way myself or one of the other ports
committers will know to close that one.
