That is something I would not care about :-)

Sounds fast & easy to implement. Only one point that is important for
me: I'd like to see CRUX(CLC?) and user contributed ports separated from
each other. I don't trust every CRUX user and I'm a bit afraid about
malicious ports. You know, especially as prt-get(8) user you are at
risk... let's face it, how often do you look into a Pkgfile *before* you
run 'prt-get install xzy'?
