If you mean in the other procedures: will you file an enhancement/submission trac ticket to "base" that takes care of that, or do I file one just for the platform{} mod?

In case such a modification to platform does get incorporated in a future MacPorts version, would there be a way to to allow port authors to use the new syntax immediately, before that future version is released? It seems that this kind of simple patches to base can be distributed via PortGroups at first (or one of the other kind of resources under _resources).
