I would like to participate in sending usage statistics. However I
currently have made out-of-tree modifications to a few ports for testing
patches and prerelease versions, using versions/revisions greater than
in the official tree so that I can easily switch between the official
port and my modified port using `port activate`.

Is there any issue posed by reporting "invalid" port info? I would guess
that the main goal of the statistics is likely for analyzing the more
popular "official" ports than for worrying about unpopular or "invalid"
ones, but want to make sure first.
