Rather than make everyone update this themselves, which will take  
forever, I propose I do a batch find and replace in all ports,  
changing livecheck.check to livecheck.type and svn.tag to  
svn.revision. This will make these ports incompatible with MacPorts  
1.7.1 and earlier. Any objections? Any other batch changes I could be  
making now that MacPorts 1.8.0 is out?
