This would be a good option, but I would anyway add a note warning
people about the cons of having portage tree in a normal partition with
the rest of the system, otherwise people could simply ignore that code
listing because they could thing it's there simply on a try to get all
system "splitted" ;) (for example, I don't usually have a separate
partition for all what is listed there, only /, /home and /usr/portage)
