Today, users who install MacPorts 1.9.x from scratch get Regstiry 2.0 whereas users who upgraded from MacPorts 1.8.x or earlier stay with Registry 1.0 (until they modify their macports.conf) (I think? Isn't that right?). With MacPorts 2.0 the old registry goes away at which point all users' registries will be able to remember negative variants.
That's incorrect, everyone running 1.9.0+ is using registry2.0 and has
their negated variants remembered whether they are using flat receipts
The choice of using flat does go away in the next release.
