I don't see why it would. It wouldn't eliminate the config screens - 
many, if not most, of the existing options couldn't be handled like

I find the config screens to be a useful way of keeping on top of new
functionality, and it's pretty trivial to get them out of the way at

feature (that portmaster already has) to portupgrade.

What I've found to be a more awkward problem is ports with interactive
deinstall scripts.
