It's not very useful, in my opinion.  The relationships between packages
form a directed acyclic graph, not a tree, so pkg_tree.sh will either
show too little (without -r) or far, far too much (with -r).  If you
want to visualize the package graph, you can feed the output of 'pkg
query "%n %dn"' into something like graphviz.  For other tasks, you are
better off learning how to use 'pkg query' and possibly creating your
own aliases or scripts.  It's not that difficult; feel free to ask for

(Just for kicks, I tried running 'pkg_tree.sh -rn' on my desktop, which
has 934 packages installed.  It's been running for ten minutes and has
printed over 90,000 lines, with no end in sight.)
