I think this is a good idea.
What's more important though is the exit code that's used for this
condition. If it stays at non-zero, calling apps will treat it as a
fatal error. If you install a bunch of ports at once via prt-get, it's
rather important, since it will decide whether prt-get stops to tell you
about the footprint mismatch or whether it will just go on...
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
Q: What is the most annoying thing on usenet and in e-mail?
