    But wouldn't an attempt to install an app dependent on mysql potentially succeed eroniously? What I'm trying to see - and education is always a good thing - is that in order to truely block mysql, you would need something a bit more complex than an entree in /etc/portage/package.provided.

    Something in addition? like:

    equery --nocolor hasuse mysql|awk '{print ">="$1}' > </etc/portage/package.provided|/etc/portage/package.mask>

    to avoid the consequences of basically saying that it's there when it isn't?

    I have read the man page, but it doesn't seem to address the consequenses down the road for this condition.
