I'd sure buy into this! After spending hours fumbling
around with linux-jdk ... . (*mumble*)
It's probably the porters wsho understand what fits
with what and could best put together this kind of
metaport. echo to stdout things like: "THIS will not
work with THAT because of x, y, z".
Or refuse (unless -f [forced) to portupgrade quasi-stable
versions of linujx-mozilla-devel to non-stable alpha versions.
