Thanks.  I'd asked Matthew Seaman off-list, who pointed to the first of 
those commits on github.  I see you engaged Bapt@ about the second one.

However these are not yet in the FreeBSD ports tree head, so presumably 
there will be a new version of pkg(8) coming along sometime after that.

Amazing noine else seems to have noticed these extra security messages.

cheers, Ian
