and in my dozens of days of ports pr/committing experience, I 
find/found, several ports that needed portlint fixed, and initially 
started to put in <pre/post> to get things to work, only to find that 
the python stuff dragged in played fast and furious with 'eggs', which 
messed up pkg-plist, which left eggs all over the place.

Dragging in <pre> when all you needed to do was drag in '<options'>.

Either case, from a pure theoretical case study, taking out one byte 
would speed things up.

(in theory, theory and practice are the same.. but in practice, it is 
often different)
