It would, if I could. I'd have to start using -o again, because I meant that "hard-to-describe" (coz I don't remember clearly).
You know how you sometimes decide not to get side-tracked by a weird issue you run into when trying to do something else? ;)

> might want to call it something else, since 'portautoclean' is a macports.conf variable that determines whether 'port clean' is automatically run after 'port install' - and not the 'clean because the Portfile has been modified' that you're describing.

I'm open for better names/terms, if you have suggestions?
