Removing pkgviews?


There was an interesting research project called pkgviews which aimed
at allowing parallel installation of multiple versions of packages.

I think Stoned Elipot and Alistair Crooks spent a lot of them and
effort on it, but it was never extended to cover even most of pkgsrc,
and noone has been working on it for years AFAICT.

It still has some hooks in the pkgsrc framework and in some packages

I wonder if it's time to remove it.

Comments welcome!
