Sounds great.. It's actually not really OpenSolaris.. It's almost all of
the OpenSolaris code.. Removed any encumbered bits (so far only 8 tough
wchar functions remain unimplemented), packaged it with ebuilds using
pkgcore and now finalizing a new binary package format. Currently you
can safely treat them as the same, but as we take on more contributors
in the coming months subtle differences could always pop up. Thanks for
all your help.
