Opinions probably vary, but as someone who might review and could put
the package in actual pkgsrc, I prefer pretty strongly that you go the
wip route. I can then just 'cvs up' to get your work, fix things a bit,
and iterate, and then import when ready, and it's easier for many others
to try it. It's a hassle to unpack a pkg dir from a PR. Once you have
a sourceforge login it's easy to put you on the acl.
