I was under the impression that pkgng has similar functionality built-in
(pkg updating), and so portupdate-scan would become obsolete once pkgng
becomes standard. Do you think there's still a need for portupdate-scan
even with pkgng? I'd be happy to look at fixing this, if I thought there
was a point to it.
