Replying to [comment:1 ryandesign@…]:
> I'm not certain if we want this.
> Certainly, we [wiki:PortfileRecipes#default_variants don't want variants
whose names begin with "no_" anymore]. But on the other hand we don't want
to add a default "opt" variant to all ports either; we'd have to rebuild
all our binary packages. Could disabling optimizations simply be part of
the debug variant?
> Why would a normal user want a debug variant? Granted we have it in the
cmake portgroup but I'm not sure why we have that either.

Are there any more comments on this patch?
