I use NetBSD as my normal desktop at home, so I like that I can update
pkgsrc and expect everything that I was using before to keep working
afterward. I keep up with audit-packages but it's nice only having to worry
about a large rebuild every quarter. 

They're much nicer than trying to keep up with a moving target or worrying
about when pkgX-y.zb will start building properly.

Thanks to everyone that puts in the work, it really helps.
