	You could always rename ${distpath}, which is were files are  
downloaded to (${prefix}/var/macports/distfiles/${name} by default  
IIRC) and do something like "set distpath ${prefix}/var/macports/ 
distfiles/${name}-${version}" or whatever. That would certainly  
download everything into a versioned subdir of the distfiles  
directory, but I don't know all the implications that might have for  
other things like cleaning (I presume none, but exercising caution is  
always good).
