I actually at least glance at it to make sure none of the less popular
ports I'm using might be affected. Not sure if this makes me a more
interesting person or not ;)
Anyway, if this is a major concern this might make an interesting
periodic script - similar to portaudit. So it could check nightly which
of the installed packages are scheduled to be removed from the ports
tree in the near future. I certainly won't spend any time on this, but
maybe someone out there considers this useful enough to write it?!
