Not really, but having a scheme to accommodate
 * NetBSD-release/pkgsrc-release (e.g. NetBSD-1.6.2/pkgsrc-2003Q4/i386)
 * NetBSD-release/pkgsrc-current (e.g. NetBSD-1.6.2/pkgsrc-YYYYMMDD/i386))
 * NetBSD-current/pkgsrc-current (no idea :)
would be nice.

Maybe NetBSD-1.6.2/pkgsrc-2003Q4/i386

The scheme is documented in Appendix B of Packages.txt, and changes should
be noted there. Oh, and maybe fix software like sushi and bpm. :)
