And if we are talking about new flags... is it some way to not wait for 
keypress after successful installation and displaying pkg-messages?

It is useful feature, but there is some cases where I want to do some 
action right after the install without user interaction.

For example upgrading of MySQL server with restart:

portmaster mysql-server-5.1.57 && service mysql-server restart

MySQL server is stopped during deinstall of old version, so I want to 
start it again after install to minimize downtime of the service.

It would be nice to have some commandline flag just for these rare 
cases, not global settings in portmaster.rc
