One of the reasons rev-upgrade exists is that various "bugs" (rarely this
can be actual bugs in macrpots; more often it's stuff like underspecified
dependencies in various ports) in the past could lead to things being
missed; you would only notice if you happened to use the thing that was
broken (which, if it was a build dep that is no longer needed, might well
be never; also in that case older versions of macports might not have
noticed). rev-upgrade catches these silent errors and corrects them.
