For myself, acting alone?  None.  Find something smaller and
easier to work on - not Macports_Framework, Pallet or other GUI.

For Macports?  That's up to you guys.  Fix it or forget it, or at least
withdraw Pallet and Macports_Framework from distribution for the
time being.

If someone can fix MP_Fr, I can assist, but I do not think I can
handle it alone.

Maybe there is scope for a simpler interface to Macports, such as
running scripts and intercepting the output, but I have not looked at
that.  I think maybe MP_Fr does something like that already ...

Cheers, Ian W.
