There is pkg2ng tool. I think reverse tool could be useful for such
1. System packages managed by pkgng
2. pkgng2pkg creates /var/db/pkg structure, for read-only tasks
3. Any soft relying on get info from /var/db/pkg still works (partially,
because of RO).

And then one could learn new CLI keys/output format to modify scripts,
while old could still somehow be not very broken.
