Would people be interested in a kind of pkg2html.cgi thingy that would
make fetching dependant packages a little easier. There's always
the ports cvsweb, but one needs to understand packages-specs(7) and
whatnot to be able to use them ... wait ... one could mostly just add
links to the packages into the "readme" target output. Is there a
currently maintained set of the port README.html's on the web somewhere?
