I disagree. This has been a very positive step for pkglint, inasmuch
as it's now written in something halfway comprehensible *plus* a large
number of outstanding complaints have been addressed.

I think we ought to translate it again into something more accessible
(my vote for the time being would be Python) because it's a core
pkgsrc tool; but going back is not the right answer.
