isn't pkgsrc a lot like this? As far as new ports go, I'd love to see
a ps and netstat replacement that works like these command lines do in

ps -e f -o pid,user,cmd --sort=user
30502 root      \_ /usr/sbin/sshd
30504 geo       |   \_ /usr/sbin/sshd
30505 geo       |       \_ -bash
 1346 geo       |           \_ ps -e f -o pid,user,cmd --sort=user

netstat -ptuna
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State       PID/Program name   
tcp        0      0   *               LISTEN      2409/lpd            
tcp        0      0    *               LISTEN      766/apache          
udp        0      0   *                           355/ntpd            

notice the nice legible forest (pstree) output of ps, and the inclusion
of PIDs in the linux netstat. Of course (for those that know my story)
my main task is making an openbsd kernel that doesn't rename my ata disk
when I add/remove a sata drive... or just uses partition labels in fstab
to mount the right partition in the right place, sigh, but I've got
other porting from linux issues to resolve </rant>.

...thanks for your python patch Okan.
