I used:

$ grep -E 'categories[[:space:]]' dports/python/*/Portfile | grep -v 'categories[[:space:]].*python'
dports/python/py-svipc/Portfile:    categories          science yorick
dports/python/py25-mpdclient2/Portfile:categories      audio

Yes but that's not a problem. Since the python portgroup sets categories to python, setting categories to python devel is exactly equivalent to appending devel to the categories.
