See the existing port

Basically I think that you only need to drop the py- prefix from the
port name (and then as a consequence move the port from python/ to
devel/ or something).

But now Ryan opened
and if you update your PR now, it will conflict as soon as we merge
Ryan's one (unless the two get combined).

I have one further question for Ryan though. I think that waterfall
view, console view etc. depend on having buildbot installed before
installing the view. On the other hand I would want to say "port
install buildbot" and get all the three views installed automatically.
How do you want to address that one? Note that buildbot 2 is split
into many packages.

(I still suspect some users will run into problems if they
accidentally skip the update path from buildbot to buildbot-0.8, as we
would not give them the usual one year grace period, but that's not my
call to make.)
