RFE: `port -q provides` should print just the portname

This would make it easier to parse in scripts. Currently I have to pipe the output through | cut -d\: -f2 first before I can use it. Also this should only be with the -q flag because the other information is useful in other contexts. I think I also brought this up on irc a few months ago but never got around to making a ticket for it until now...

This could be done since that appears to be what -q is meant for and it has no other use for provides.
