Yes, maybe it's not as elegant for shared mounts.  But I use locally-mounted
filesystems only.  I like /usr/pkg/src because it's similar to /usr/src (and
/usr/local/src which I use), and first and foremost because it saves you a
'/' character every time you tab-complete to /usr/pkg/something/something. :-)
