You can't programmatically revbump safely, because in ports with subports you have to manually determine which subport(s) to revbump and how to do so. e.g. the php port is definitely a special case. So if you're manually examining all ports that depend on openssl, you can run an "svn log" on them to see if any commits after r146162 updated the version or revision.
