I think it would fit better with historic precedents to make pkg
optional (but default on) in 10, and mandatory in 11. As stated
before, I'm fine with removing pkg_* tools from 10 if there is robust
support for them in the ports tree.

I know you're excited about this project, but let's not lose sight of
how big a change this is, and how important ports are to the project.
