Though to determine what has changed in an existing (and known to me)
repository since a date is a useful feature too -- my curiosity right now
is itching about how to learn about completely *newly added* ports. ("Oh
great -- the MacPorts team has added 'tabula-extractor' and 'askbot' a week

My guess is that this would be a useful feature for many more users.
