Ah, of course. I didn't actually know this but indeed port versions could be specific to OS version or platform even if no other specific information is stored.
Sorry for the noise.

Pity though, the first-run portindex of a fresh git clone just took about 5 quarters of an hour on one of my machines (a good 5s/port).

I think that wouldn't (or shouldn't) happen as the timestamp would be newer. And of course the auto-regeneration could be deactivated if the server always serves an up-to-date index.
