What about handling chromium-bin the same way amd64 handles grub-static?
They create a standard binpkg of the normal grub ebuild (using
standardized USE flags, of course), using that as the source tarball for
the grub-static ebuild, which then simply ebuild-scripts the unpack and
install of the binpkg tarball.
In theory, the ebuild could even grab and merge the appropriate binpkg
based on arch, allowing the ebuild to be keyworded for more archs than the
usual binary-only ebuild tends to be, altho I'm not sure that'd work in
practice as I'm unsure of the effects on the metadata cache and whether
that would be allowed or not.
