Well, no one ever said the pkg_* tools were specular quality code. I have seen a lot worse, but FreeBSDs tools are, eh, should we say far from pretty on the inside. Many parts of it feels like something that was hacked out as needed and no ones the time to refactor.

I don't think I want to know what OpenSolaris' looks like inside the package management system, lol.
