This is all no longer just migrating the user's ports, it's trimming
them down as well. What if they installed some ports before 1.9 so
they're not marked as requested? What if they have some ports installed
with multiple sets of variants that they swap between?

A separate page explaining how to make sure your requested ports are
marked as such and how to trim leaves would be useful, and we could link
to it from the Migration page. But the migration procedure itself
shouldn't be changing what's there more than it has to.
