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.
Why do you care what people are complaining about? Just make the port. :)
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.
We already allow such ports, for example a bunch of kmods install into
/boot/kernel or /boot/modules.
There are always exceptions to rules and for good reasons!
