        I'd sure buy into this!  After spending hours fumbling
        around with linux-jdk ... .  (*mumble*)

        It's probably the porters wsho understand what fits
        with what and could best put together this kind of
        metaport.  echo to stdout things like: "THIS will not
        work with THAT because of x, y, z".

        Or refuse (unless -f [forced) to portupgrade quasi-stable
        versions of linujx-mozilla-devel to non-stable alpha versions.
