Hi Daniel, We are making a push to eliminate interactive ports. Yours (hunch) obviously has a listed maintainer but it hasn't been updated in 9 years. Can we: 1) deprecate and eliminate it 2) Convert it to a regular port If neither, can you explain why this has to be interactive and why it deserves a place in the tree even though no packages are being built for it because of it's interactive nature? Thanks, John

[maintainer] This port can be eliminated. I don't think anyone uses it.
