I would also be OK with creating a pseudopackage as well as Ian suggested.

[Or multiple pseudopackages.]

Something like i386.ports.debian.org or similar would work, with each
current port getting a pseudopackage, and the maintainer of the
pseudopackage being the ports list.

America was far better suited to be the World's Movie Star. The
world's tequila-addled pro-league bowler. The world's acerbic bi-polar
stand-up comedian. Anything but a somber and tedious nation of
socially responsible centurions.
