That's actually false, I tested before committing and just ran the
test again to confirm: decreasing epoch, increasing revision and
running portindex shows a port as outdated.


dports $ port installed miniupnpc
The following ports are currently installed:
  miniupnpc @1.5_2 (active)
dports $ grep "revision\|version\|epoch" $(port dir miniupnpc)/Portfile
version             1.5
revision            2
epoch               2
dports $ portindex >/dev/null; port outdated
No installed ports are outdated.
dports $ #editing portfile
dports $ grep "revision\|version\|epoch" $(port dir miniupnpc)/Portfile
version             1.5
revision            3
epoch               1
dports $ portindex >/dev/null; port outdated
The following installed ports are outdated:
miniupnpc                      1.5_2 < 1.5_3
dports $

Actually the epoch didn't make any sense because current target is 1.5
tarball and mastersite offers both 1.5.tar.gz abd a newer
1.5.20110527.tar.gz, if epoch had to be set at all it had to be
20110527, as it was upgrading fine without epoch I decided to remove
