I've also tried packaging pithos as wip/py-pithos, but the package
wants to have python 3.x and notify support, but the py-notify*
packages I found in pkgsrc do not support python-3.x. There might also
be more dependencies missing, but I don't see that because running
pithos fails with a "notify missing" error.
