Until pkg fetch and/or pkg install can ncurses-deselect the hundreds they are 
about to act on rather
than a Y, N...

cat pkg-to-fetch-file | xargs -J % pkg fetch -y %  
seems to fail.

I've sed'd away the : and the right awk'd away

foo-1: foo-1_1 

so the port remains
foo or foo-1, [ I forget... ]
but the list  [ the file... ] 

etc I can';t seem to pipe into the 'pkg fetch -y' reliably, or if I've found
the solution in the past, have forgotten it.

Experts?    or feature request? 
OTOH may be in one of the xargs one-liner or cheat sheet I've filed locally as
.htm, .txt or .pdf...
