It's not exactly the same, but the lang/python2 port for example is a
meta-port which creates
symlinks such as  /usr/local/bin/python2 -> python2.7.

So the precedent of having a metaport which creates symlinks is there.
What folks  have been complaining about in this thread is having symlinks
in the "base system directories" such as /bin.

My personal feeling is that we should look at this on a case-by-case basis
and allow these types
of ports, such as for /bin/bash but I'm sure others will disagree.
