On the one hand:

Maybe we can agree that the pkg binary breaking between different
10.x versions was unfortunate ? I understand that it was not a
break of the ABI promises per se, but I can tell you, I was surprised
as well, when it bite me 8-}

On the other hand:

Getting the ports/pkg tree moving with the velocity necessary
to cope with the fast-changing world, sometimes things break
and we all try to prevent this. Sometimes, mistakes happen...
