New pkg-message[.in] guideline idea

I would like to propose you something that I would like to be done.
It's a cosmetic, useless thing but I like when things are made
homogeneously. That is the problem : as you can see, sometimes port
tells a message to the user but some maintainers used delimiters to
begin/end the message such as a lot of "***" or "===" or blank spaces.
If you already did use NetBSD pkgsrc, you can see that *every* MESSAGE
is composed like this :
$NetBSD: MESSAGE,v 188.8.131.52 2008/10/20 09:28:51 wiz Exp $
Note you need audio/audacious-plugins to actually play music.
I would do something like this to the FreeBSD ports, if you agree with
me I can check every messages and modify them. I can also put
something in the FreeBSD porter's handbook to write a "pkg-message
I know that there is much more important work to do, that's why I can
take all this work for myself.
Please report any feedback,
With kind regards.
