	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.
