You could do port test foo && port upgrade foo if you wanted, but this  
might be a nice feature (and/or a conf setting to always run the test

port actions aren't interactive (this is a purposeful design  
decision), so getting something like that that requires interactive  
input would at a minimum require a special flag to be passed to port.
