pkg_add(1) needs to be able to fetch the primary package file
[pkg-name argument] from one location and any dependencies
[+CONTENTS: @pkgdep] from a second location.
In other words, these two examples should be made to work.
# remote pkg-name
# local pkg-name
Also, consider enhancing the 'path' type environment
variables to allow multiple paths/methods in order:
One of the reasons this is needed is to allow
develop[ment/ers] of local code or packages to
easily bring in libraries and things they need.
Without having to build and deal with them
locally. Automation of build environments.
Less or selected bandwidth use.
Another case is openoffice. 2.4.x is outdated
and good-day does not carry the deps for any
version, thus it needs manual intervention and
pointing to freebsd.org/mirror to install the deps.
pkg_* tools are discontinued

The concept does not really apply to pkg(8) as pkg supports multiple repositories
