Agreed and done.

For my part, I request that people not be shy about bumping
PKGTOOLS_VERSION in lib/version.h when modifying pkg_install (in
both bootstrap-pkgsrc and pkgsrc), as we do with PKGREVISION in
other packages.

Of course, as before, one should bump PKGTOOLS_REQD in
only if nothing less than the latest PKGTOOLS_VERSION will do.
