I might have an objection to that.  Homebrew links into your system in  
slightly unpredictable ways - I certainly don't mind them being ADDED,  
or even recommended, but I think that purging all references to  
MacPorts might be excessive.

On the other hand, how hard is it to figure out how to type 'sudo port  
install couchdb'?
