Especially for users on dial-up and slow/costly internet connections. Ports 
tree should stay intact- whatever version it has. Upgrading ports with csup 
or portsnap will be 100x faster.

And I still don't get the idea about backing up user files in home folder? 
What the point- all files would be on same folder later anyway... Back up 
only KDE and apps configurations. PBI- installations should work after any 
upgrade path (installcd/online)- if not then PBI is bad/**** and should be 
banned from pbidir.com.
