building foreign packages with pkgsrc

Long ago there was a GSOC project [1] mentioned in pkgsrc-users [2] for supporting foreign package formats (e.g., FreeBSD, RPM, DPKG, etc.). It seems that pkgformat infrastructure exists in mk/pkgformat (and seems to be used for package creation) but it only supports native pkgsrc packages.

Was there ever support for other formats?

Is there any interest in supporting other formats?

How complicated would it be to support other formats using this framework?

Is there anyone who has expertise with any foreign package formats who would be willing/interested in helping to do this?
