I am not going to fight someone else's war.  All I care about are that
those pkg-plists are formally correct.  I will be adding
'@dirrmtry www/data' on sight.  If you don't want to change your ports,
fine, that's your decision.  I'm not going to force anyone to change his
port in that direction, even if I believe it's a good idea.  Feel free
to disagree.
