Why would you think that? To be clear, I'm talking about doing `port uninstall` 
in one terminal and the other command(s) in another terminal (or after `port 
uninstall foo &`, in thebackground). The description of what VACUUM does makes 
it a very likely candidate for an IO intensive operation that takes time AND 
blocks both read and write access.
