Comment (by ryandesign@…):

 According to the [http://www.imagemagick.org/script/porting.php porting]
 document, ImageMagick 7 brings many changes, some backwards-incompatible,
 including changing the way the command line utility processes arguments,
 renaming some functions in the libraries, and removing deprecated
 functions. This has the potential to break MacPorts ports that use
 ImageMagick, especially ports of older software that hasn't been updated
 in awhile, and also scripts written by MacPorts users. Meanwhile, the
 developers promise to continue updating ImageMagick 6 for at least 10
 years. So I think it would behoove us to stay with ImageMagick 6 for the
 time being. If we start seeing software that requires ImageMagick 7, we
 can look into updating it then.
