So, if I understand correctly, I could use this to upgrade from python26
to python27? Or perl 5.8.9 to perl 5.12? and everything that depended
on the former will be upgraded to the latter? Can I say "sweeeeet" in
advance? Is there a way to do that with portupgrade, or is this one of
those features that makes portmaster a better mousetrap?
