 ==== Interactive port command ==== #interactive
 Write an interactive command-line tool that can be used instead of the
-non-interactive port(1)
+non-interactive port(1). 
+The current port(1) should be viewed as batch mode reading from stdin.
+An interactive tool would ask for user input to resolve many situations
+that cause port(1) to simply error out. For example, if you try to
+install a port and one of its dependencies conflicts with something
+already installed, it could ask if you want to deactivate the installed
+one and its dependents.
