yes yes, it's very easy to throw rocks in hindsight at developers who, quite 
literally, were in completely new waters.  not just in the Gentoo/PMS world, 
but in multilib *anywhere* (other distros, upstream packages, etc...).  i'd 
say it's almost as easy as shooting fish in a barrel, but mythbusters proved 
that's actually kind of hard.
