portupgrade and gnome

Is there any way that portupgrade could be made "smart" enough to not 
upgrade the gnome ports?  Since you have to download and run the upgrade 
script (and why isn't that part of the ports anyway?), it doesn't make a 
great deal of sense to run portupgrade and then run the gnome upgrade 
script, yet it's impossible to tell from portupgrade (when it's running) 
what are gnome dependencies and what are not.

Seems like a lot of duplication of effort could be easily fixed by either 
downloading and calling the script (and exiting portupgrade?) or simply 
ignoring any "gnome" ports.
