Great work ! I just tried it, and it works really nice.

I assume the goal is to make it available for the ports upgrade system,
for that pkg_updating needs the install date of the old port. I'm not
sure where this is available. Do you ?

ps. I first tried 'pkg_updating apache', and got no complaint (about a
missing -p).
