the abi-wrapper doesnt look terribly appealing.  why dont we use broken/custom 
-config handling as incentive to convert packages to .pc files.  pkg-config 
handles ABI/cross-compile splitting cleanly and transparently.

bash-4 is stable, so we could start depending on it.

you dont save/restore CPPFLAGS

is there documentation that covers the proposed changes/design to portage ?  
i'm not looking for high level (it runs src_compile twice).  i dont recall 
seeing details posted to the portage or gentoo mailing lists ...  it's hard to 
review `git diff portage-svn..master`.
