Creating custom ports versions.

Hi people.

Very often I use slightly modified ports just to achieve some additional or remove some extra options that the original port provides. I'd like to suggest to propose implementing a new ports function that would allow users to create a child port (for example in /usr/ports/custom) that has the same name as the parent, but which has some differences that the user needs. Every time the ports are updated if the version of the parent port is changed, this also affects the child ports, so you do not need to track them manually.
Similar solution for FreeBSD can be found here: https://www.amoradi.org/2019/11/12/maintaining-port-modifications-in-freebsd.html
I belieive that this is very demanded function.
Best regards,
Sergey.
