An observant maintainer would notice the change and learn from it
(isn't revision control great?).
I think sweeps across all ports to implement global policy best
serves the interest of the users of MacPorts. I think it's best to
view maintainers as the primary contributors to a port, and not
owners with veto power. I'm speaking as the maintainer of a few
ports myself, who doesn't have enough time to keep abreast of all the
latest and greatest MacPorts directions.
