I would say you should hack up the ebuild and post a copy of it to
bugzilla as a bug.  Assign it to the maintainer of the ebuild and
hopefully they'll accept it.  It helps to also have a few people that
you know use it to chime in and also to be around to help the developer
solve any problems there may be with the new functionality, such as
being a testing guinea pig for the developer.
