I count 13 Portfiles with pre-deactivate hooks and 33 Portfiles with
post-deactivate hooks. Of course that is not counting the PortGroups
that use them: all 3 Haskell PortGroups use pre-deactivate hooks, and
there are a few hundred Portfiles using the main Haskell PortGroup.
Also, the Octave, TeXLive, and x11font PortGroups each use
post-deactivate hooks, and there are a few hundred more Portfiles
using at least one of those PortGroups, between the three of them...
idk if "a few hundred" is enough to be considered "a lot", considering
that we have over 18000 ports overall currently, but I think it is
still enough to consider giving it a look...
