I changed to pkgng a couple weeks ago before realizing the "Security 
Incident" was holding up binary ports.  I used to install from source 
most of the time, and updates seemed to be required to be from source. 
But now it's just from source or nothing.  I want pkgng to help deal 
with some of the cruft that ends up occurring when installing ports that 
have a lot of dependencies.

What's really annoying to me is that a clean install cluster, so 
presumably secure, could probably rebuild the whole ports tree in the 
time it's taken to get something available.
