It will remain contributed software (and the port will remain for the
foreseeable future).  I hope that we'll see active development in the
FreeBSD forks and that we can use the port as a -devel version.

Importing it means that we'll build it for all FreeBSD platforms and
thus be able to run tests on any FreeBSD platform that supports C++
(currently all of them) rather than ones where we're building packages.
