Can I ask one more possibly really dumb question, to which I can find no 
answer: Is there a 'conventional', or sensible for one reason or 
another, place to download application source to? Presumably you don't 
want it mixed up in the ports distfiles, or in the system's source 
directory. I know this sounds very silly, and the answer might be 
'wherever you like', but I do like to learn the conventions which 
usually have good reasons behind them.
