This would be quite easily accomplished by branching the ports tree we
have no in CVS. Doing this would accomplish a lot of goals:
1. Make it easier for users to pick up and test new ports
2. Make it easier for the "experimental" trees to keep up to date with
the canonical ports tree
3. Allow us to have a "stable" ports tree that users can check out and
be reasonably well assured that everything in it will work together safely.
Nothin' ever doesn't change, but nothin' changes much.
