Saw this over on /.

"NetBSD's Packages Collection aka pkgsrc now has support for an experimental new framework called ``pkgviews''. This framework, finally allowing multiple versions of one package to co-exist without conflicts (among other great features), was first proposed by Alistair Crooks at EuroBSDCon 2002 and has been integrated into pkgsrc by Johnny C. Lam, who just posted a User's guide to the tech-pkg MailingList."


This looks way cool! Way to go jlam!

Thanks! I still have a lot more work to do to stablize the pkgviews infrastructure code and to convert packages to use it, but I'm happy that it's finally at a point where it's integrated into pkgsrc and people can start experimenting with it.
