If it's a portage thing, please have it be a FEATURE that can be toggled 
off.  Symlink trees are ugly, as someone else mentioned, and not everyone 
will want them.

Alternatively, as I suggested in a different subthread, make it a 
separate package.  Then people can install it if they want/need.  This 
package could even include a script that hooks into the existing portage 
phase-hook structure, and presumably similar scripts for the other PMs, 
thus making the whole thing automatic.
