That will certainly be a big help.  When we got rid of the pkg/ and
patches/ directories I begged Satoshi to go farther and put patches in
main port directory and get rid of pkg/COMMENT.  That was back when we
hit 3000 ports -- I guess people didn't want to accept we would hit 8000
in only a few years.

Of course why we don't just put "COMMENT=blah" in the ports's Makefile
