I didn't remember that Templates/Licences/ existed, that's the only reason. :)
I'll remove them on the next update (if I verify that they are
completely standard).

And that's wrong, like for Qt 4 or KDE 4. That's why I fixed it in
I'm open to discussion on this.

Right, I'll change it.

I always find this an interesting point, but never managed to read
anything near to "official" about it, so I always left it as it was at
the beginning. Is there some thread discussing it?
Also, some time ago I had a talk with bapt@ about pkgng and alternate
dependencies, and my conclusions were that specifying ABI would have
paid in the long term. But that was pure fantasy, and lots of things
could be said against this.

I just wanted to tidy it up a bit (I tend to be quite obsessive
sometimes :), but you're right, I'll pay more attention.

It is, if I remember correctly, but I think I added it in the very
beginning because it was my first port and I had no real experience.
On the next update I'll check it, but I always felt like it wasn't a
problem to think about.

Thank for reviewing (really). ;)
