"normal" is not the same thing as "always".  unless you're the maintainer, you 
have no idea whether old versions are kept there on purpose.  ive had people 
delete older versions of packages on me simply because they made this invalid 
assumption without talking to the maintainer.  the rest of the thread is 
irrelevant as this point was not made.

a quick check of your list shows wine/uclibc shouldnt be blindly culled.

i dont plan on fixing my ebuilds soonish since this isnt a terribly important 
issue, but they'll get fixed at some point
