Even though I have a complete NetBSD repository here I keep pkgsrc separate
from NetBSD's src because I see pkgsrc moving beyond just NetBSD.  Like it
or not, but I think that's its advocated purpose.  And taking that in
hindsight it makes little sense to people not using NetBSD to tie
restrictions of pkgsrc to what goes on in NetBSD's src repository.

(In case people miss it, not trying to belittle NetBSD or anything, just
trying to place things in proper perspective, since I am coming from a
totally different angle than most I guess.)
