I reserve the right not only to change my mind, but also to be wrong on 
occasion. :)  I just ran into a situation where having this option would 
be useful, so I added it to the svn version of portmaster, r220121. 
Fortunately it was not as painful as I thought it might have been.

I don't have immediate plans to cut a new release given that 3.6.1 has 
been very stable, and I have a lot of other fish to fry atm. However 
feel free to download the devel version from svn and give it a try.
