Sorry for interrupting the dialogue, are we speaking of ~1.000 ports?
Personally, as a future heavy user of TeXLive port, I'd like to see it
as modularised as possible, just like X.org. Can you maybe post here
just a list of future ports before you public a full tree for testing?

If it's not possible, does this mean that every, e.g. LaTeX .sty
package is a separate port? And, e.g. that ConTeXt is a port (or more
likely more ports), all libraries included within particular
derivatives, font groups, etc? With lots of meta-ports? If this is so,
it would be amazing IMHO, and in the true spirit of Ports System... I'm
delighted that we'll have this in Ports.
