Yes, we can. From what I've read on this list before, it's somewhat up
to the maintainer which modeline he uses. We suggest to use this
standard modeline, but don't force, do we?

However, since the modeline contains ft=tcl for vim it actually
overrides the Portfile syntax from [1]. I personally find this pretty
annoying. If somebody on this list has a better suggestion on how to
make vim ignore this part of the modeline and set ft=portfile instead
I'm happy to change it back, but until then I vote for either dropping
ft=tcl completely or replacing it by ft=portfile.
