While talking installer, heres a thought:

Currently you can pick a few profiles when you install gentoo. How about
installing profiles via emerge?

ex.

# emerge sys-profiles/small-tightly-packed-email-server
# emerge profile
(renaming the system target to profile)

And for a somewhat diffrent topic:

why was the stable-unstable-masked scheme done the way it was? Wouldnt it be
easier to fork the ebuildtree into seperate trees?

ex.

# emerge stable/sys-apps/baselayout
# emerge all/x11-wm/ion-devel
# emerge local/x11-wm/testpackage

This would allow everyone and his dog to have his own seperate tree of what
he thinks is stable/suitable.
