I don't think this is a very common usage of selfupdate. Most users only
run selfupdate once in a while given the current rate of commits in
MacPorts _will_ see at least one change.

Consider writing a patch if you want this. I don't see myself doing
this, because the benefit to the average user is probably zero and the
developers are all using subversion anyway.
