You probably shouldn't ever decrease a port's revision unless you  
also simultaneously increase its version.

What if someone has already installed freeradius 2.0.4_1?

What if you later want to make a change to the portfile which  
necessitates increasing the revision? You will have to remember at  
that time to increase the revision to 2 (not 1) so that users who  
already had the short-lived 2.0.4_1 will be informed via "port  
outdated" of the new port.

In my previous comment, I just wanted to make sure you were aware,  
for future changes, that the initial revision for a given port's  
version should be 0, not 1.
