Drop imaging support from reportlab

I would like to make the following change to print/py-reportlab:

Index: Makefile
RCS file: /cvsroot/pkgsrc/print/py-reportlab/Makefile,v
retrieving revision 1.55
diff -r1.55 Makefile
< DEPENDS+= {${PYPKGPREFIX}-Pillow-[0-9]*,${PYPKGPREFIX}-imaging-[0-9]*}:../../graphics/py-Pillow
> DEPENDS+=     ${PYPKGPREFIX}-Pillow-[0-9]*:../../graphics/py-Pillow

The reason is that the original fails if it is a dependency of a Python 2.7 package. It builds the ${PYTHON_VERSION_DEFAULT} version anyway. Since imaging is no longer maintained and Pillow is a plug and play replacement this seems like the simplest solution.

There are two other ways to fix this as I see it. We could fix the dependency logic but that is a bit beyond my current skills and available time. The other way is to create a PREFER_IMAGING variable that can be tested by packages such as these.

What say you all?
