One suggestion was to add cxx_stdlib as a variable in archive_sites.conf, and upload the libc++ archives with the same names as the libstdc++ archives but in a new subdirectory, e.g. https://packages.macports.org/libc++/.
One downside of using identical archive names is that we'd be unable to differentiate local libstdc++ archives from libc++ ones based on file name. This distinction could be used to rebuild packages after changing cxx_stdlib, for instance.
