One of the things that Kris and I try to do it to avoid removing ports
that have PRs filed against them (I think I missed, once, though).  

My preference would be that you go ahead and submit a PR but put in
the body that the other PR needs to be committed first.

My goal in instituting a procedure for ports removals was not to add
arbitrary hurdles to the port maintainers -- it was simply to have
some kind of process to say "if no one is ever going to use/fix broken
port XYZ again, let's get rid of it", so the ports collection stays
as useful as possible.
