That looks useful. One thing I would think of adding is a search box.

I would have thought of breaking the lists into pages but am surprised 
at how fast the longer pages are generated.

One port that it has an issue with is devel/pear-HTML_Select_Common the 
<select> in the pkg-desc consumes all the following ports info. So you 
probably want to escape or translate "<" ">" into &lt; &gt;
