So I have started using pkgng. It is extremely easy to convert, it runs
very fast, and I really like it.
However, it would be nice if the old pkg_install, pkg_info, etc programs
were somehow disabled on FreeBSD-8. Maybe they could look inside
/etc/make.conf and see if /var/db/pkg/local.sqlite exists, and then
decide not to operate.
The reason for this is because I can easily see me accidentally doing
pkg_delete instead of pkg delete. And especially since pkg convert
seems to leave all the old directories in /var/db/pkg, I can see this
creating quite a mess.
I know I can simply delete the pkg_delete, pkg_info binaries. But I'll
have to remember to do that each time I remake world.
