Me too.

I just frequently run into a bug: when icu is updated, somehow the old 
libraries are not saved and all ports depending on icu break.
Now I know that I should take care with that single port.

Also, I wish I would be to be able to "portupgrade" a jail, i.e. running 
portupgrade in base and update the ports inside jails, without the need 
to install portupgrade (and ruby and every other dependency) in the jail.

That said, I've been considering the move to poudriere, but that's a low 
priority task.
