 Hi everyone at macports

 I'd like to suggest to add a newshortcut  command as a convenience

 That shortcut should call in sequence:
 - port selfupdate
 - port upgrade outdated

 Depending on your taste, that shortcut should have a short name,
 I'd vote for "port up"

 That command could possibly have a -i (interactive) flag,
 which would call "port outdated" after the selfupdate
 and ask for yes/no confirmation before applying the "upgrade outdated"

 When run with the -v (verbose) flag,
 it should also call "port outdated" after selfupdate but before upgrade
 to display the outdated candidates before the upgrade starts.
